Richard Lussier Named Deputy Associate General Counsel in the Division of Advice
Today, National Labor Relations Board General Counsel Jennifer Abruzzo announced the appointment of Richard Lussier as Deputy Associate General Counsel in the Division of Advice. The Division of Advice provides guidance to the Agency’s Regional Offices regarding difficult and novel issues arising in the processing of unfair labor practice charges and coordinates the initiation and litigation of injunction proceedings in federal court under Section 10(j) and (l) of the National Labor Relations Act.
Mr. Lussier began his career at the NLRB in 1996 as an attorney in the Division of Advice. He was promoted to supervisory attorney in the Injunction Litigation Branch in 2017. In 2020, Mr. Lussier was named Assistant General Counsel for the Agency’s Injunction Litigation Branch.
A Connecticut native, Mr. Lussier graduated from the University of Connecticut in 1991, Quinnipiac University School of Law in 1995, and Georgetown University Law Center in 1997.
“Richard is a tremendous attorney who has spent his career upholding the National Labor Relations Act,” said General Counsel Abruzzo. “He’ll continue to be an asset to the Agency in his new role as he continues to effectuate the Act.”
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.
