Houston – Last month, we informed you about the new NLRB rule that was to go into effect on November 14, 2011, requiring most private sector employers to display a poster advising employees of their rights to organize under the National Labor Relations Act. According to the NLRB website, the 11-by-17-inch notice should be posted in a conspicuous place, where other notifications of workplace rights and employer rules and policies are posted, and employers should also publish the notice on an internal or external website if other personnel policies or workplace notices are already posted there. Additionally, the notice must be posted in an additional language if 20% or more of the employers’ employees are not proficient in English but speak the same language.
The NLRB recently pushed the date back to January 31, 2012, largely due to the numerous groups that have filed suit to block the posting requirement. Will it be delayed again, or possibly struck down before our next newsletter? We’ll be sure and keep you posted.
