New workplace-poster mandate generates controversy

A new mandate that will require nearly all private-sector employers to post an 11” x 17” workplace notice telling employees about their right to unionize is sparking a firestorm of protest.

The mandate takes effect for covered employers on Nov. 14, but a pending lawsuit seeks to block the regulation. A bill is also pending in the U.S. House to repeal the mandate.

Even as litigation proceeds, however, the National Labor Relations Board is moving ahead with plans to implement the requirement. The NLRB Sept. 14 released the required poster for download on its website.

The NLRB first proposed the mandate late last year. The National Restaurant Association and groups representing millions of other employers filed comments in February urging the NLRB to withdraw the rule. The NLRB in August instead overrode employer concerns and made the requirement final.

The National Association of Manufacturers filed a lawsuit Sept. 8 to block the new requirement. NAM argued, among other things, that the NLRB does not have the legal authority to impose the poster requirement. Timing for the lawsuit's consideration is not yet known.
