NLRB Final Rule Goes Into Effect November 14, 2011
September 12, 2011

The National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) issued a Final Rule on August 25, 2011 requiring most private-sector employers (including labor unions) to notify employees of their rights under the National Labor Relations Act (NLRA) by posting a notice. The rule is scheduled to be posted in the Federal Register on August 30, 2011 and take effect 75 days later. Employers should begin posting the notice on November 14, 2011. 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. Failure to post the notice may be treated as an unfair labor practice under the NLRA.
