Eastburn and Gray Alert – Workplace Notice Requirements
The National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) has issued its final rule with respect to a new workplace notice posting requirement in addition to the current NLRB requierments. Beginning April 30, 2012, most private businesses will be required to display an 11-by-17-inch poster outlining employee rights, along with other workplace posters displayed by the company. Where applicable, employers must also post a physical copy of the notice at worksites and an electronic copy on their company’s internal or external website, if the company already does so with similar federal notices.
Copies of the official poster can be obtained here. Employers do have the option of posting their own notice in addition to the NLRB notice, as long as it does not contain threats of reprisal or force or promises of benefit.
