Thank you for visiting the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) online and reviewing our website privacy policy. Our privacy policy explains how we handle the personally identifiable information (PII) that you provide to us when you visit us online to browse, obtain information, or conduct a transaction. The NLRB will not collect personal information (your name, a unique identifier, your Internet address, your mailing address, your telephone number, or financial information that you may provide us) when you visit our site unless you choose to provide that information. Even then, the personal information you provide on the NLRB website will be used only for the purpose for which you provided it, as the NLRB does not track or record information about individuals and their visits. The NLRB will revise and/or update the privacy policy if our practices change. Please refer back to this privacy policy page for the latest information and the effective date(s). Changes to NLRB privacy policy will not be applicable retroactively. In compliance with the Privacy Act of 1974, 5 U.S.C. § 552a, all public-facing sites and/or forms requesting personal information will display or link to the NLRB privacy notice. The NLRB protects your information in accordance with the Privacy Act of 1974, the E-Government Act of 2002, P.L. 107-347, and the Federal Records Act, 44 U.S.C. § 3301 et seq.


System of Records Notices

A system of records is defined by the Privacy Act of 1974 as a group of any records under the control of any agency from which information is retrieved by the name of an individual or by some identifying number, symbol, or other identifying particular assigned to the individual.  Rules exempting systems of records from certain Privacy Act requirements are in 29 C.F.R. 102.119(h)-(p).


Privacy Impact Assessments

By federal law and regulation, privacy issues and protections must be considered for information technology systems that contain personally identifiable information. To fulfill these legal and regulatory obligations, NLRB uses the Privacy Impact Assessment (PIA).

By conducting PIAs, the NLRB ensures that:

  • The information collected is used only for the intended purpose.
  • The information is timely and accurate.
  • The information is protected according to applicable laws and regulations while in the NRLB’s possession.
  • The impact of the information systems on individual privacy is fully addressed.
  • The public is aware of the information that NLRB collects and how the information is used.
