Compliance New employee rights notices needed soon
WASHINGTON (8/31/11)--The majority of private-sector employers will need to publicly post notices of employee rights as detailed under the National Labor Relations Act (NLRA) in their offices beginning on Nov. 14 under a new rule announced by the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) Tuesday. Although there was significant opposition from the business community, the NLRB finalized the rule, noting 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,” and a similar notice must be posted online in some cases. 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 rules. However, the notification requirement would not apply to agricultural, railroad and airline workplaces, and U.S. Postal Service outlets are also exempt from the requirements for the time being. CUNA noted that credit unions that already comply with DOL posting requirements will be in compliance with the new NLRB rule. For more on the new requirement, use the resource link.
