All Employers Must Post Notice of Employee NLRA Rights by November 14, 2011

Davis Wright Tremaine LLP

As employers’ cluttered bulletin boards demonstrate, many federal and state laws require employers to post notices advising employees of various rights. The National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) has now added to that clutter by issuing a rule requiring virtually all employers (union or non-union) to post a notice informing employees of certain rights under the National Labor Relations Act.

The new required notice will have both a summary of employees’ rights under the Act and examples of how employers and unions could violate those rights. It also will describe the obligation to bargain in good faith when a union has been selected by employees and assures employees that illegal conduct by employers will not be permitted. Employees are advised to contact the NLRB with any questions or complaints. While the official notice has not yet been published, a sample of the notice contents can be found here. The rule will become effective on Nov. 14, 2011.
