A new NLRB requirement….. By now, many of you may have heard about a recent ruling from the NLRB (National Labor Relations Board) requiring most private-sector employers to notify employees of their rights under the National Labor Relations Act. Many employers are calling this the “How To Form a Union” poster, as both union AND non-union employers are required to post the document. Currently there is pending litigation attempting 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.
Employers will be required to post the NLRB poster in the same place that other required workplace posters are, or electronically post, if that is how the company notifies their employees of information. This does not mean an email distribution, but rather an online data warehouse where policies or workplace documents are stored.
The required workplace poster is now available for free download from the NLRB website.
