SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

The National Labor Relations Board is withdrawing the notice of proposed rulemaking that was published in the Federal Register on September 23, 2019 (84 FR 49691), and corrected on October 16, 2019 (84 FR 55265). The document proposed a rule establishing that students who perform any services for compensation, including, but not limited to, teaching or research, at a private college or university in connection with their studies are not “employees” within the meaning of Section 2(3) of the National Labor Relations Act. The Board has decided to withdraw this rulemaking proceeding based on its judgment respecting the most effective allocation of the Board's limited resources at this time. In light of competing agency priorities, the Board has determined to focus its time and resources on the adjudication of cases currently in progress.
