NLRB Issues New Rule Requiring Employers to Post Notices

By: Alexis Gutierrez

The NLRB has issued a Final Rule that requires employers to notify employees of their rights under the NLRA. This regulation is a mandatory posting effective November 14, 2011.

The notice is currently available at here. Employers that choose to download the notice from the NLRB’s website are required to print it on 11×17-inch paper, or on two 8 ½ x11 sheets.

NOTE: The NLRB was recently sued by a manufacturing group, contesting the new posting rule based on the argument that the NLRB has no authority under the Act to adopt such a requirement. Other lawsuits challenging the rule are likely to follow. However, employers will be expected to comply with the posting requirement on November 14, 2011, unless a court enjoins implementation of the rule.
