Many employees are unaware of the fact that, in addition to protection against illegal activities by various state laws, the National Labor Management Relations Act (29 USCS § 157) (the “Act”) provides protection for certain activities that are not covered by state laws. Oftentimes, employees are under the misconception that, in order to have the National Labor Relations Board investigate a perceived workplace wrong, the employee must belong to a union. That is not the case. Section 7 of the Act provides, in part, as follows:
Employees shall have the right. . . to engage in other concerted activities for the purpose of . . . other mutual aid or protection.
