Businesses Required to Notify Employees of Right to Organize, Join a Union


New NLRB Rule Requires All Employers Subject to the National Labor Relations Act to Post a Notice by November 14, 2011

On August 30, 2011, the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) published a new rule in the Federal Register requiring most private-sector employers to notify employees of their rights under the National Labor Relations Act (NLRA) by posting a notice in the workplace.

Which Employers Must Comply with the Posting Requirement?

The posting requirement applies to all employers that are subject to the NLRA, which excludes agricultural, railroad, airline and federal, state and local government employers, as well certain other employers, such as those over which the NLRB has not asserted jurisdiction or which are considered by the NLRB to be too small to impact interstate commerce under NLRB standards.
