National Labor Relations Board (NLRB)

The NLRB has issued a Final Rule that requires employers to notify employees of their rights under the National Labor Relations Act (NLRA).  This regulation is a mandatory posting effective by January 31, 2012. 

Executive Order: 13496: Notification of Employee Right Under Federal Labor Laws previously required only employers classified as federal contractors and subcontractors to post the Employee Right Under The National Labor Relations Act notice, effective last June 21, 2010.  A NEW final rule has just been issued by the NLRB, published in the Federal Register on August 30, 2011, that now extends this posting requirement to employers in the private sector.  Taking effect January 31, 2012, the NLRB has made it mandatory for employers in the private sector subject to the NLRA to post the new version of the notice to make employees aware of their rights under the law.
