A proposed rule by the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) would require private-sector employers to display a poster notifying employees of their rights under the National Labor Relations Act (NLRA).

The NLRB Notice of Proposed Rulemaking was published in the Federal Register today, and public comments on the proposed rule will be accepted for 60 days (until Feb. 22, 2011).

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 Poster Compliance Center Research Department will closely monitor this proposal to see if the final rule that is issued by the NLRB following the public comment period includes a new NLRA poster requirement for private employers. If so, PCC would publish a new federal labor law poster including the new NLRA requirement.
