Private Sector Employer Notice of Employee Rights under the National Labor Relations Act now available online from the NLRB.

As we reported in our recent Legal Alert, the NLRB issued its final rule requiring private employers to post notices to its employees advising them of their rights under the National Labor Relations Act. The final rule directed the specific language that must be posted where other workplace notices are posted, and on internet or intranet sites if employer personnel rules or policies are posted on those sites. The required workplace poster is now available for free download from the NLRB website, www.nlrb.gov/poster.

What This Means to You

There is currently litigation pending seeking to stop this rule from going into effect; however, unless the courts rule to the contrary, employers should have the required notice ready for posting in appropriate sites on November 14, 2011, when the final rule takes effect.
