The National Labor Relations Board has extended to Jan. 31, 2012, the deadline for employers to display posters notifying employees of their right to organize. According to an announcement by the American Subcontractors Association, the NLRB postponed its original Nov. 14 deadline “to allow for enhanced education and outreach to employers.”
The new rule requires all private-sector employers, including employers with or without union work forces, subject to the National Labor Relations Act to display posters in “conspicuous places, including all places where notices to employees are customarily posted.” In addition to the physical posting, the rule requires every covered employer to post the notice on an Internet or intranet site if personnel rules and policies are customarily posted there. The notice must also be posted in another language if at least “20 percent of an employer’s employees are not proficient in English but speak the same foreign language.”
