NLRB Issues New Rule Requiring Employers to Post Notices

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 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.
