Employee associations take many forms: employment committees,
labor organizations, recreational and social organizations, clubs, and athletic
groups. Certain employee associations, such as labor organizations, are legally
protected by employees’ right to organize under the National Labor Relations
Act (NLRA). Employee committees that deal with the terms and conditions of
employment are illegal if they are controlled or dominated by management.
Legal employee committees serve
many useful functions including getting employee input and involvement and
organizing social recreational activities.
