The National Labor Relations Board on August 30, 2011 published a final rule requiring most private employers in the United States to post a notice informing employees of their right to bargain collectively and to engage in concerted activity under the National Labor Relations Act. Originally, the notice was required to be posted by November 14, 2011. However, the Board has extended the posting date to January 31, 2012. The required posting is described in detail in our Jones Day Commentary titled "NLRB Issues Rule Mandating Notices Informing Employees About Rights to Organize," dated September 2011.
