WASHINGTON, DC-General Counsel Peter B. Robb named Alice B. Stock as Deputy General Counsel of the National Labor Relations Board. Before her appointment, Ms. Stock was serving as Associate General Counsel in the Office of the General Counsel.
Before joining the NLRB, Ms. Stock represented employers in labor and employment matters for over 25 years, practicing in law firms in New York City. Most recently, Ms. Stock served as a Partner with Pryor Cashman LLP in New York City, a role she held from 2010 to 2018. Ms. Stock's practice included a myriad of matters falling under the NLRA, including defending unfair labor practice charges and advising employers in collective bargaining and strike situations. Ms. Stock has also counseled employers concerning employment discrimination, sexual harassment, equal employment opportunity, affirmative action, wage and hour, wrongful discharge and unfair competition issues and has represented employers in such claims before federal, state and local courts and administrative agencies.
General Counsel Robb remarks: 'Ms. Stock's wealth of experience, keen intelligence and charismatic personality has prepared her well for her new role at the NLRB. We are very fortunate to have her serve as the Deputy General Counsel.'
Ms. Stock received her bachelor's degree from Yale University and her J.D. from Harvard Law School.
The Office of General Counsel is independent from the Board and is responsible for the investigation and prosecution of unfair labor practice cases and for the general supervision of the NLRB field offices in the processing of cases.
Established in 1935, the National Labor Relations Board is an independent federal agency that protects employees and employers from unfair labor practices and protects the right of private sector employees to join together, with or without a union, to improve wages, benefits and working conditions. The NLRB conducts hundreds of workplace elections and investigates thousands of unfair labor practice charges each year.
