Unfair Labor Practice

Any practice that violates labor law in the United States. Both employers and employees can commit unfair labor practices. For example, an employer is not permitted to refuse to negotiate with a properly recognized labor union. Likewise, a union or group of employees may not require an employer to hire workers the company does not need. Unfair labor practices are defined primarily in the Taft-Hartley Act and the National Labor Relations Act.
