NLRA rights poster now available
The National Labor Relations
Board has released the new
poster that most private employers will be required to display as of
November 14, 2011. The poster explains the rights of most non-management
employees under the National Labor Relations Act (NLRA) to band together on
issues related to wages, hours and working conditions.<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = “urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office” /?>
If you have an intranet or
internet site where you customarily post notices for employees about personnel
rules or policies, then you must include this new poster, either as an exact copy,
or as a link that says Employee Rights under the National Labor Relations
Act. Fortunately, federal contractors who already are displaying the NLRA
poster from the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) can rely on the DOL poster. The
poster is the result of a new regulation issued by the Board, which we
explained in our September 1, 2011, newsletter (76
Fed Reg 54006, Aug 30, 2011).
