Q & A For New Federal Labor Law Poster About NLRA Rights

Here are the answers to some of the questions you may have about the new NLRA federal labor law poster, “Notice of Employee Rights Under Federal Labor Laws”, which must be posted beginning June 19 by federal contractors and subcontractors.

Q:   Are there any exceptions to the posting requirements?

A: Yes.   The requirements do not apply to prime contracts under $100,000 or subcontracts below $10,000, according to the Department of Labor Fact Sheet.

Q:   Is there a notice requirement in addition to the posting requirement?

A: Yes.   Federal contracts and subcontracts must include a provision requiring federal contractors and subcontractors to post the notice.   This means that the text of the “Notice of Employee Rights” must be inserted into federal contracts and subcontracts.

Q:   Will the employee notice poster be required in languages other than English?

A: Yes.   Contractors and subcontractors will be required to provide the employee notice poster in languages spoken by the employees if “a significant portion of the workforce is not proficient in English”.   These translations will be issued by the Department of Labor at a later date.

Since the NLRA “Notice to Employees” applies only to federal contractors and is not a general requirement, it will not be added to our federal labor law poster.   However, a new all-in-one Federal Contractor poster, which will include the NLRA notice, is now in production.  For further information about state and federal labor law posters go to postercompliance.com or call Poster Compliance Center at 1-800-322-3636.
