  • In December 2010, the National Labor Relations Board (“NLRB”) issued a proposed rule that would require employers subject to the National Relations Act (the “Act”) to post notices informing employees of their rights under the Act. Over 7,000 comments were received in response to the proposed rulemaking, the vast majority against the proposed rule. The opposition to the rule notwithstanding, on August 30, 2011, the NLRB issued its final rule requiring the posting of such notice. The Rule applies to all employers covered by the Act, which includes all but the very smallest private employers. (The Act does not apply to employers who do less than $50,000 in interstate commerce in a year). The Rule takes effect November 14, 2011 and the Board has published a poster that will satisfy the requirements of the Rule.
