"This Guide has been prepared by the Office of the General Counsel to provide guidance to hearing officers in conducting hearings in NLRB representation proceedings and Section 10(k) hearings.
The Guide emphasizes techniques of conducting the hearing and developing a complete record.
It is designed only to provide procedural and operational guidance to the Agency's staff and is not intended to be a compendium of substantive or procedural law, nor a substitute for knowledge of the law.
Similarly, the Guide does not constitute rulings or directives of the Board or the General Counsel, and is not a form of authority binding on either the Board or General Counsel."
Answers the questions: What is the NLRB? What does the NLRB do? What is the NLRB's structure? How are unfair labor practice (ULP) cases processed? How are representation cases processed? What authority does NLRB have to secure injunctive relief from a court?
