The following is a guest blog post by Brendan Nicholls, Sales Manager at PrimePay.
In one of our August blog articles… Final Ruling on Controversial Employee Rights Notification… we reported that employers would be required to post the new employee rights notice as of November 14, 2011.
The National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) has postponed the implementation date for its new employee rights notice-posting rule until January 31, 2012 in order to allow for improved education and outreach to employers, particularly those who operate small and medium sized businesses.
The postponement was a result of uncertainty regarding which businesses fall under the Board’s jurisdiction, and was done with the goal of broad voluntary compliance. As a result of the postponement, most private sector employers will be required to post the 11-by-17-inch notice beginning on January 31, 2012.
The notice is available at no cost from the NLRB through its website, either by downloading and printing or ordering a print by mail. Copies also are available from any of the agency’s regional offices. In addition, employers should publish a link to the notice on an internal or external website if other personnel policies or workplace notices are posted there.
For further information about the employee rights notice posting, including a detailed discussion of which employers are covered by the NLRA, and what to do if a substantial share of the workplace speaks a language other than English, please see the NLRB’s Frequently Asked Questions.
