Final Rule for Notification of Employee Rights

The National Labor Relations Board has issued a Final Rule requiring most private-sector employers to notify employees of their rights under the National Labor Relations Act by posting a notice. The rule is scheduled to be posted in the Federal Register on August 30, 2011, and will take effect 75 days later on November 14.

The 11-by-17-inch notice is similar in content and design to a notice of NLRA rights that must be posted by federal contractors under a Department of Labor rule.

The notice of rights will be provided at no charge by NLRB regional offices or can be downloaded from the Board website and printed in color or black-and-white. Translated versions will be available and in some instances will be mandatory.

Employers must also post the notice on an intranet or an internet site if personnel rules and policies are customarily posted there.

Copies of the notice will be available on the NLRB website and from NLRB regional offices by November 1.
