NLRB poster required by April 30

April 13, 2012
All employers covered by the National Labor Relations Act must post a notice by April 30 which informs employees of their rights under the NLRA, including the right to form and join unions. The poster does not inform employees of their right not to join a union or how to seek decertification of a union.
The rule was first scheduled to take effect late last year, but several lawsuits challenging the proposed rule were filed, resulting in two postponements of its effective date. The most serious allegations in the lawsuits challenged the NLRB’s authority to adopt the rule.
The NLRB posting rule requires employers to post a translated version of the required workplace notice if 20 percent or more of the workforce communicate in a language other than English and have trouble understanding written English.
Versions of the poster in English and Spanish are posted on the CATA website, See the NLRB’s website,, to download the poster in other  languages, and get a fact sheet regarding the workplace posting requirement and answers to frequently asked questions.
