NLRB Transitions to SecureRelease for Processing Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) Requests

Office of Public Affairs

Starting October 1, 2023, members of the public can submit Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests for Agency records using SecureRelease. SecureRelease replaces FOIAOnline, which will be decommissioned by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) on September 30, 2023. For more information on the decommissioning of FOIAOnline, please see this FAQ.

Please visit the NLRB’s website for more information on the transition to SecureRelease. The NLRB is committed to transparency in its work effectuating the National Labor Relations Act. Since 1967, the FOIA has provided the public the right to request access to records from any federal agency. It is often described as the law that keeps citizens in the know about their government.

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.
