Employee status sought for college athletes as group files complaint on behalf of UCLA, USC players

Feb 9, 2022

A second unfair labor practice complaint was filed Tuesday against the NCAA, this one attempting to capitalize on a September ruling by the National Labor Relations Board that could eventually lead to college athletes becoming employees of their universities.

The California-based National College Players Association (NCPA) filed the complaint with the NLRB naming not only the NCAA but the Pac-12, UCLA, USC, and all Division I football, men's basketball and women's basketball programs as complainants.
