Jurisdictional Standards

​​The NLRB exercises its discretion to limit its cases to those involving enterprises whose effect on commerce is substantial. The Board’s requirements for exercising its power or jurisdiction are called “jurisdictional standards,” and are based on the annual amount of business done by the enterprise or on the annual amount of its sales or of its purchases. The Board does not exercise jurisdiction over racetracks; owners, breeders and trainers of racehorses; or real estate brokers.​
