  • Mississippi does not have a counterpart to the National Labor Relations Act (NLRA) that covers labor relations between private employers and employees. The right of most private sector employees to organize and bargain collectively or to engage in other protected concerted activity is governed exclusively by the NLRA. See Right to Organize and Bargain Collectively.
  • Mississippi is a 'right to work' state. See Right to Work.
