New NLRB Rule Requires Private Sector Employers To Post Notices


For the first time since its establishment in 1935, the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) has issued a Rule requiring employers covered by the National Labor Relations Act (NLRA) to notify employees of their rights under the NLRA. On August 30, 2011 the NLRB published its new Rule requiring all private sector employers to post an 11” x 17” Notice in “conspicuous places on its premises,” where such Notices are customarily posted. This Rule takes effect on November 14, 2011 and covers both non-union and unionized employers, other than governmental employers, and specifically exempted railroad, airline and agricultural employers.

The Notice is titled, “Employee Rights Under The National Labor Relations Act” and specifically states that employees have the right to:

• Organize a Union

• Form, Join or Assist a Union

• Discuss Their Wages And Benefits With Co-Workers

• Bargain Collectively

• Raise Work Related Complaints

• Strike And Picket

• Choose Not to do Any of These Things
