Public Comment Period Ends for Proposed NLRA Poster for Private Employers

The 60-day period for public comments on the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) Notice of Proposed Rulemaking has ended.   The proposed rule would require private sector employers to display a federal labor law poster notifying employees of their rights under the federal National Labor Relations Act (NLRA).

The NLRB Notice of Proposed Rulemaking was published in the Federal Register on Dec. 22, 2010.

The proposed NLRA poster would be similar to the NLRA poster that federal contractors have been required to post since June 19, 2010, according to the NLRB.

The NLRB is expected to review the public comments and then issue a final rule that may include a new NLRA poster requirement for private employers.

The Poster Compliance Center Research Department continues to monitor this proposal closely.   If a new federal poster is required for private employers, PCC will publish an updated federal labor law poster including the new NLRA requirement.
