Employment Partner Patrick Muldowney and Employment Law Partner and Leader of the firm’s Labor Relations Team Mike Asensio authored "NLRB Announces New Posting Requirement” which was published in the Fourth Quarter 2011 edition of HR Update, a publication of the Central Florida Human Resource Association.
Asensio and Muldowney explain that on August 25, 2011, the National Labor Relations Board (“NLRB”) published its Final Rule requiring all employers covered by the National Labor Relations Act (“NLRA”) – both unionized and nonunion– to post a notice in the workplace informing employees of their right to organize, bargain collectively and engage in other concerted and/or protected activity under the Act. The new rule is scheduled to take effect on January 31, 2012.
The article covers who the rule applies to, where the notice must be posted and describes the penalty for failure to comply with the NLRB’s posting requirement. Asensio and Muldowney caution that employers should take great care to make sure they comply with the posting requirements by the required date to avoid committing an unfair labor practice.
