Unfair Labor Practice

What is an unfair labor practice?

An unfair labor practice is an action by an employer or a union that violates the National Labor Relations Act (NLRA). There are five categories of unfair labor practices for employers that are prohibited under the NLRA: 1) Interference, restraint or coercion; 2) Employer domination or support of a labor organization; 3) Discrimination on the basis of labor activity; 4) Discrimination in retaliation for contacting the NLRB; and 5) Refusal to bargain.
