Compliance Employee rights notice deadline is postponed
WASHINGTON (10/7/11)--Private-sector employers got a reprieve Thursday from an approaching regulatory deadline that would require them to publicly post notices of employee rights, as detailed under the National Labor Relations Act (NLRA), in their offices beginning on Nov. 14. The National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) pushed the implementation date for its rule back to Jan. 31, 2012. The NLRB said it delayed the deadline following queries from businesses and trade organizations indicating uncertainty about what businesses fall under the board’s jurisdiction. The board finalized the rule to a back drop of significant opposition from the business community, saying that "many employees protected by the NLRA are unaware of their rights under the statute" and adding that the rule "will increase knowledge of the NLRA among employees, in order to better enable the exercise of rights under the statute." The new notice is similar to one required by the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) for federal contractors. The NLRA notice must be posted "in conspicuous places” where they are readily seen by employees, including all places where notices to employees concerning personnel rules or policies are customarily posted. A similar notice must be posted online if personnel rules and policies are customarily posted there. Translated versions of the poster are required in workplaces where 20% or more of employees speak a language other than English. Credit Union National Association (CUNA) compliance staff noted that since credit unions that are not specifically excluded from the NLRA's definition of "employer," they will be subject to the rule. CUNA has noted that credit unions that already comply with DOL posting requirements will be in compliance with the new NLRB rule.
