Employers take note: The extended deadline of April 30, 2012 is approaching for compliance with a new National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) rule that applies to the vast majority of private-sector employers. To comply, employers should print the poster from the NLRB website (below) and post it in the area(s) where other mandatory employee notices are posted before the April 30, 2012 deadline. Employers should be aware that the poster requirement is still facing legal challenges and there remains a possibility the deadline could be extended again.
The poster, titled “Employee Rights Under the National Labor Relations Act” describes various employee rights, as well as restrictions on certain activities by employers and unions under the National Labor Relations Act.
The poster itself and particulars on the notice and posting requirements can be found here: http://www.nlrb.gov/poster.
Answers to frequently asked questions are here: http://www.nlrb.gov/faq/poster#t245n1740.
The details on which employers must post are here: http://www.nlrb.gov/rights-we-protect/jurisdictional-standards.
There are currently no fines or penalties for noncompliance but the NLRB could use evidence of failure to post in an unfair labor practice case against an employer that involves other alleged violations of the National Labor Relations Act.
