National Labor Relations Board (NLRB)


While at the reference desk this week a seasoned attorney came up and was wondering whether we have access to the reports and decision of the National Labor Relations Board. Actually, we have a subscription through the BNA databases but in this case it might be more convenient for anyone who doesn't have that access to go to the official government website.   
The NLRB website offers a wide variety of rules and regulations, guides, and manuals in English as well as in Spanish. In addition its research section allows access to legal-related documents, specifically NLRB Board decisions and memos, the weekly summary of NLRB cases, and AppellateCourt briefs and motions filed by the NLRB General Counsel.  
Furthermore one can find the National Labor Relations Act, manuals written for legal and non-legal audiences which provide a wealth of material useful for understanding and navigating NLRB cases as well as the General Counsel memos.
