Welcome to Region 16 of the National Labor Relations Board. We conduct elections, investigate charges of unfair labor practices, and protect the rights of workers to act together, serving the state of Texas from our main office in Fort Worth and resident offices in Houston and San Antonio. If you have questions or wish to file a charge or petition for election, please visit one of our offices or call and ask for the Information Officer on duty. We can arrange to have someone speak with you in the language of your choice. We are also happy to provide speakers and materials to promote a greater understanding of the National Labor Relations Act.
A plastic surgery center in Dallas has agreed to pay more than $300,000 to settle charges that it unlawfully fired two employees and then sued one of them in state court after she sought help from the NLRB's Fort Worth office.
The center, Advanced Facial Plastic Surgery Center, PA, also agreed to drop the state lawsuit, to rescind a rule prohibiting wage discussions by employees, and to cease paying its attorney to unlawfully and coercively represent its employees. The National Labor Relations Board issued an order on May 29, 2013 approving the terms of the formal settlement.
