The National Labor Relations Board is currently closed due to a lapse in appropriated funds.

Only such government activities necessary to prevent an imminent threat to the safety of human life or the protection of property may be undertaken in the absence of specific budget authority.

NLRB Offices will reopen after a funding bill is passed by Congress and signed by the President.

  • Tolling of time for filing documents, including briefs and appeals;
  • Postponement of unfair labor practice hearings before Administrative Law Judges;
  • Postponement of representation elections and hearings; and
  • Timeliness of charges and petitions. Please note that the six-month statute of limitations remains in effect for the filing of unfair labor practice charges. Please consult the NLRB Notice for specific instructions.
