Legal Alert: NLRB Proposes Rule Requiring Posting of Employee Rights Under the NLRA


The National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) has published a proposed rule that would require all employers covered by the National Labor Relations Act (NLRA), including unions in their capacity as employers, to post a notice informing employees of their rights under the NLRA. The proposed rule does not apply to employers who are not covered by the NLRA such as the U.S. government, any wholly owned government corporation, any Federal Reserve Bank, any state or political subdivision and any employer covered by the Railway Labor Act.

According to the Board, many employees are unaware of their rights under the NLRA and the NLRA's lack of notice requirement is an "anomaly" among major federal employment laws. Thus, the Board believes that informing employees of their statutory rights is central to advancing the NLRA's promise of "full freedom of association, self-organization, and designation of representatives of their own choosing."
