Just in Time for Labor Day! NLRB Issues New Employee Rights Notification Ruling.

Posted on: September 1st, 2011 | Category: Government Regulatory & Compliance Issues, Human Resources, Our Blog

Make a little room on your employee notice boards, everybody! Our friends at the Society for Human Resources Management’s Lehigh Valley Chapter (SHRMLV) have alerted us regarding a new National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) requirement for businesses. Last week, the NLRB announced that effective November 14, 2011, all private sector employers* will be required to post an employee rights notice where they place or post other workplace notifications. This notice is similar to one that federal contractors are currently required to post that informs employees of their rights to organize in a union and to bargain collectively. If you normally put your workplace notices to employees regarding personnel policies on your company’s intranet and/or Internet sites, you will be required to put this information on there as well.

Failure to post the notice will be deemed an unfair labor practice and can be viewed as a reason to extend the statute of limitations for filing unfair labor practice charges. The exact form is not yet available, but copies of the notice will be provided,  free of charge, through NLRB regional offices and will be downloadable from their website by November 1, 2011. Translated versions will be available as well, and must be posted at workplaces where at least 20% of employees are not proficient in English.
