NLRB Proposes New Notice Requirement

Originally posted on December 28, 2010 by Ryan

The National Labor Relations Board (“NLRB”) proposed a new notice requirement on December 20, 2010, which affects all employers subject to the National Labor Relations Act (“NLRA”).  If the Board passes this proposed rule, employers will be required to post a notice in the workplace informing employees of their rights under the NLRA.  Among these rights are the rights to organize or join a union, bargain collectively, discuss wages and terms of employment with co-workers or a union, and picket.

Failure to comply with this regulation can result in severe sanctions including charges of unfair labor practices, extension of time limits in which to file charges of unfair labor practices, and consideration of the failure to comply as evidence of unlawful motive.

The NLRB notice poster will likely mimic the language found in the Department of Labor (DOL) poster released in May of this year.
