Description

The National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) is comprised of a team of professionals who work to assure fair labor practices and workplace democracy nationwide. Since its creation by Congress in 1935, this independent Federal agency has had daily impact on the way America's companies, industries and unions conduct business. Agency staff members investigate and remedy unfair labor practices by unions and employers. They also conduct elections to determine whether employees wish to be represented by a union, and if so, which union. In the Agency's field offices, attorneys act on behalf of the General Counsel, investigating charges of unfair labor practices, resolving or litigating cases, conducting elections, and acting as hearing officers in contested representation matters.

Region 10 interns work in the Atlanta field office and assist in conducting investigations, arranging and conducting elections, and performing legal research and drafting. Interns may be briefed by senior officials from throughout the Region and Agency about the NLRB on both procedural and substantive labor law issues. Interns will be asked to produce written work products summarizing the results of investigations along with recommendations. The Agency will provide on-the-job training as well as training on the NLRB through live and video presentations.
