NLRB Requires Employer Posting of Union Rights

September 1st, 2011 by JBWK

The National Labor Relations Board issued its final rule last week on new required postings notifying employees of their rights under the National Labor Relations Act.

The posting requirement becomes effective November 14, 2011. The NLRB will have 11×17 printable posters available on its website by November 1. Additionally, there are methods of electronic distribution via company intranet or internet sites if employers also disseminate information that way.

There is good news for small businesses, however: the NLRB is exempting small businesses that it typically doesn’t exercise jurisdiction over. If you don’t know whether the NLRB exercises jurisdiction over your company, now’s a good time to find out!
