NLRB Proposes Workplace Poster
The National Labor Relations Board is proposing a rule that would require employers to notify employees of their rights under the National Labor Relations Act (NLRA).
Private sector employers whose workplaces fall under the NLRA would be required to post the employee rights notice where other workplace notices are typically posted. If an employer communicates with employees primarily by email or other electronic means, the notice would be posted electronically as well.
The proposed notice is similar to one approved recently by the U.S. Department of Labor for federal contractors. It states that employees have the right to act together to improve wages and working conditions; to form, join, and assist a union; to bargain collectively with their employer; and to choose not to do any of these activities. It provides examples of unlawful employer and union conduct and informs employees how to contact the NLRB with questions or complaints.
Comments on the proposal may be submitted electronically to www.regulations.gov, or by mail or hand delivery to Lester Heltzer, Executive Secretary, NLRB, 1099 14th St., N.W., Washington, D.C. 20570. Comments must be received on or before Feb. 22, 2011.
