The National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) employee rights notice-posting requirement was recently upheld as valid by U.S. District Court Judge Amy Berman Jackson. As such, most private sector employers, regardless of whether they are unionized or not, will be required to display this poster no later than April 30, 2012.
Excluded from coverage under the National Labor Relations Act are public-sector employees, agriculturaland domestic workers, independent contractors, workers employed by a parent or spouse, employees of air and rail carriers covered by the Railway LaborAct, and supervisors (although supervisors that have been discriminated against for refusing to violate the NLRA may be covered).
Judge Jackson refused to delay the posting requirements pending an appeal of the decision, reasoning that the NLRB’s rule simply notifies employees of rights that they are already guaranteed under the NLRA, and that increasing employee awareness cannot be deemed “irreparable harm” to employers. The poster may be found at the NLRB website: https://www.nlrb.gov/poster.
