NLRB Extends Reply Comment Period on Proposed Fair Choice and Employee Voice Rule
Due to an administrative error on regulations.gov, six public comments intended for the NLRB’s proposed Fair Choice and Employee Voice rule were inadvertently filed under an unrelated docket. The issue has been resolved and the comments have been reassigned to the appropriate docket.
In order to provide adequate time for the public to review all comments on the Notice of Proposed Rulemaking, the NLRB is extending the period for responsive comments to initial comments. Publication of this extension in the Federal Register is anticipated Wednesday, February 15, 2023, with the new deadline for responsive comments of Wednesday, March 1, 2023.
Public reply comments are invited on the aspects of the proposed rule raised in the initial comments and should be submitted either electronically to regulations.gov, or by mail or hand-delivery to Roxanne L. Rothschild, Executive Secretary, National Labor Relations Board, 1015 Half Street S.E., Washington, D.C. 20570-0001.
Established in 1935, the National Labor Relations Board is an independent federal agency that protects employees from unfair labor practices and protects the right of private sector employees to join together, with or without a union, to improve wages, benefits and working conditions. The NLRB conducts hundreds of workplace elections and investigates thousands of unfair labor practice charges each year.
