On December 21, 2010, the National Labor Relations Board ("Board") issued a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (pdf), which, if finalized, would require employers to notify employees of their rights under the National Labor Relations Act ("Act"). If you would like to review the Board’s News Release regarding the proposed rule, please click here (pdf).

The proposed rule would apply to private sector employers covered by the Act, and would require posting of the notice were workplace notices are typically posted. The rule would require electronic posting of the notice if the employer typically posts workplace notices electronically.

Employers interesting in commenting on the proposed rule may do so by following the instructions in the proposed rule. All employers covered by the Act should be sure to stay tuned to ensure compliance, if the proposed rule is finalized.
