New Deadline for Employers to Display Employee Rights Poster
As a result of the postponement, most private sector employers will be required to post the 11-by-17-inch notice beginning on January 31, 2012. The notice is available at no cost from the NLRB through its website, either by downloading and printing or ordering a print by mail.
The decision to extend the rollout period followed questions from businesses and trade organizations indicating uncertainty about which businesses fall under the NLRB’s jurisdiction, and was made in the interest of ensuring broad voluntary compliance.
According to the NLRB, no other changes in the rule, or in the form or content of the notice, will be made.
For further information about the jurisdiction and posting requirements for the new notice, please see the NLRB’s Frequently Asked Questions, which will be updated regularly as new questions arise. For questions that do not appear on the list, or to arrange for an NLRB presentation on the rule, employers may contact the agency at firstname.lastname@example.org or 866-667-NLRB.
