U. S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission

"Our mission is to promote equal opportunity in employment by enforcing the federal civil rights employment laws through administrative and judicial actions and education and technical assistance.

The Department of Labor is responsible for the administration and enforcement of over 180 federal statutes. These legislative mandates and the regulations     produced to implement them cover a wide variety of workplace activities for nearly 10 million employers and well over 100 million workers, including       protecting workers' wages, health and safety, employment and pension rights; promoting equal employment opportunity; administering job training, unemployment insurance and workers' compensation programs; strengthening       free collective bargaining and collecting, analyzing and publishing labor and economic statistics.

The National Labor Relations Board is an independent Federal agency created in 1935 to enforce the National Labor Relations Act. They conduct secret-ballot elections to determine whether employees want union representation and we investigate and remedy unfair labor practices by employers and unions. Check out their site to find out more about your rights under the Act (as well as other labor laws) and how to file a charge or election petition.

The Weekly Summary of NLRB cases, as the name implies, is a publication that summarizes each week all published NLRB decisions in unfair labor practice and representation election cases, except for summary judgment cases. It also lists all decisions of NLRB administrative law judges and direction of elections by NLRB regional directors.
