New Poster again! The NLRB in 11x17 and on your intranet!

The National Labor Relations Board has issued a final rule requiring most private-sector employers to notify employees of their rights under the National Labor Relations Act by posting a notice. The rule was placed of the Federal Register on August 25. It is scheduled to be posted in the Federal Register on August 30 and will take effect 75 days later. 

The posting requirement, which takes effect on November 14, 2011 is intended to inform employees - both unionized and non-unionized - of their NLRA rights and is patterned after other required postings.

The rule will not apply to non-NLRA employers, including employers of railroad, airline, and agricultural workers. Federal contractors will also be required to post this NLRB notice as well as others.

Employers must post an 11-by-17 inch poster in the workplace and requires covered employers to post the notice on an internet or intranet site, if HR rules and policies are genrerally posted there. However, employers will not be required to distribute the posting by emails. 

The poster will be on the NLRB website for download and available at no charge in hard copy form at NLRB regional offices.  Posters will available by November 1, 2011.

Don't follow the posting requirements?  You may have earned an unfair labor practice.

Employers failing to post the notice may get a break as the NLRB recognizes that employers may be unaware of the new rule. In those cases, the Board may not seek penalties as long as the employer posts the notice right away.
