New Employment Poster Required November 14, 2011

    Paula Fulghum

    This poster is required to be placed in a common place to be seen by employees. The final rule also imposes a requirement that employers post the notice on an intranet or internet site if personnel rules and policies are customarily posted there. There are also requirements for printing the poster in languages other than English.

    The  poster is required to state that employees have the right to act together to improve wages and working conditions, to form, join and assist a union, to bargain collectively with their employer, and to refrain from any of these activities. It provides examples of unlawful employer and union conduct and instructs employees how to contact the NLRB with questions or complaints.  Specific language is provided in the final rule.

    This new posting requirement applies to nearly all private-sector employers subject to the NLRA, which excludes agricultural, railroad, and airline employers. NLRA rights apply to both union and nonunion workplaces and all employers subject to the NLRB’s jurisdiction will be required to post the notice.
