In this issue: NLRB Rule Creates New Obligations for Employers; and Retaliation Passes Race Discrimination as Most Common EEOC Charge.
Excerpt from 'NLRB Rule Creates New Obligations for Employers':
On December 22, 2010, the National Labor Relations Board issued proposed regulations that, if enacted, will create a substantial change in the workplace. The proposed rule requires employers subject to the National Labor Relations Act to inform employees of their rights under the NLRA, including the right to form and join labor unions.
What many companies do not realize is that most private sector employers are subject to the NLRA, whether unionized or not. In the case of a nonretail business, the NLRA applies to those that (a) provide at least $50,000 worth of goods or services out of state, or (b) purchase at least $50,000 worth of goods or services from out of state. For a retail business, coverage exists if the business has gross annual revenues of at least $500,000.
