National Labor Relations Board
About the agency
The National Labor Relations Board is an independent agency that enforces US labor law in relation to collective bargaining and unfair labor practices.
Notably, requesters can seek materials associated with proceedings held before the National Labor Relations Board. Administrative Law Judges oversee these proceedings and you may acquire their official reports, an example of which is when nonprofit organization Property of the People received the transcripts, exhibitions, and other reports generated from the NLRB case in which one of Donald Trump's hotels appeared before the Board.
Requester suggestions, tips and guidance
The NLRB has promulgated Subpart K, Section 102.117 of its Rules and Regulations, which sets forth the Agency’s administrative FOIA procedures. Subparagraphs (c) and (d) set forth the administrative procedures that a FOIA requester must follow in making a FOIA request to the Agency, filing an administrative appeal, and exhausting administrative remedies. They also provide for fee category placement, assessment of costs, and the standards for determining whether a fee waiver will be granted. Subparagraph (e) incorporates the nine FOIA exemptions by reference.
