NLRB Posting Requirement

labor-laws-poster

NLRB-logo-color-300x300Effective January 31, 2012, the NLRB will require private sector employers, with or without a unionized workforce, to post its official notice of employee rights bulletin. The posting requirement applies to all private-sector employers within the Board’s jurisdiction. This includes most private-sector employers, including labor unions, but excludes agricultural, railroad and airline employers, as well as very small employers that conduct an insufficient volume of business to have more than a slight effect on interstate commerce. In most instances, a business volume of $250,000 to $500,000 per year will subject an employer to NLRB jurisdiction.

The Notice should be posted in conspicuous places, where other workplace rights notices and company notices concerning personnel rules or policies are customarily posted. A failure to post the notice may subject the employer to an unfair labor practice charge; although the NLRB has stated it will not be independently auditing employers for compliance.
