The poster that employers will be required to display to notify employees of their rights under the National Labor Relations Act is now available for download. Employers may print out the notice in color or black-and-white on one 11-by-17-inch paper or two 8-by-11-inch papers taped together. The National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) will also provide copies of the notice on request at no cost to employers by contacting a NLRB regional office. Under the final rule issued by the NLRB, private-sector employers whose workplaces fall under the National Labor Relations Act, including both union and non-union workplaces, will be required to post the employee rights notice where other workplace notices are typically posted beginning November 14, 2011.
Covered employers must also post the notice on an internet or intranet site if personnel rules and policies are customarily posted there. Very small employers whose annual volume of business is not large enough to have more than a slight effect on interstate commerce may not be required to comply with the posting requirement.
The poster may viewed and downloaded from the NLRB website by clicking here. The NLRB has provided a series of frequently asked questions with further information about the rule, including a discussion of what to do if a substantial share of the workplace speaks a language other than English.
