Weekly Wednesday Acronym – NLRB…(The Poster is now available for download!!)

As a follow-up to yesterday’s blog, I’m continuing to focus on the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB).  Let’s first start with who the NLRB is.  Direct from their website is the following definition:

The National Labor Relations Board is an independent federal agency that protects the rights of private sector employees to join together, with or without a union, to improve their wages and working conditions.

As Olivia reported yesterday, much has been in the news recently regarding the protection of employee’s rights, specifically concerted activity.

On August 30, the NLRB issued a final rule that requires any private-sector employer covered under the NLRA to post a notice to its employees of their rights under the act.  If there are 20% or more employees who are primarily non-English speaking, the notice must also be posted in the preferred language.  If employers post other employee notices, such as those required by the DOL, on the company’s intranet or other site, the NLRB notice must be posted there as well.  The notice must be posted regardless of current unionization status.

Although there is not a fine for non-compliance, your company could become ripe for an “unfair labor practice” charge if the notice is not posted.  The failure to comply could be used as evidence in the event a case is brought against your company.
