Fair Access to Indemnity and Reimbursement Act - Amends the National Labor Relations Act to allow the recovery of attorney's fees and costs by certain employers and labor organizations who are prevailing parties in proceedings brought against them by the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB). Requires that such employers or labor organizations have not more than 100 employees and a net worth of not more than $1.4 million at the time of such proceedings. Provides for such recovery without regard to whether the position of the NLRB or a court was substantially justified or special circumstances make an award unjust.
