New Mandatory NLRA Poster & Federal Contractor Exception

Ever since the requirement for the new NLRA poster (National Labor Relations Act) for private employers was issued, there  have been questions from some of  our customers  wondering if  they must post this new poster or the similar mandatory NLRA poster for federal contractors that was issued in June 2010.

If you have been wondering about this, here is a quick overview of the 2010 federal contractor NLRA poster requirement:

  • Federal contractors are businesses or organizations who have contracts with the federal government.
  • The NLRA poster for federal contractors (issued by the U.S. Department of Labor) is mandatory for federal contractors or sub-contractors of federal contractors.
  • Exceptions:   The NLRA poster requirement for federal contractors does not apply to federal contracts under $100,000 or sub-contracts under $10,000.

Federal contractors who have been required since June 2010 to post the NLRA federal contractor poster do not need to post the new NLRA poster for private employers.

We are currently publishing a new federal labor law poster with the new NLRA poster for private employers, which must be posted by Nov. 14.   This new federal poster will be covered under our OneSystem 1-Year Compliance Plan.
