NLRB Comment Deadline February 22
by NOARK Webmaster Edited Monday, February 21, 2011
Earlier this month, SHRM alerted members that the National Labor Relations Board is seeking feedback by February 22 on its proposed rule requiring covered employers to post notices informing employees of their rights under the National Labor Relations Act (NLRA).
SHRM does not believe that the NLRA gives the Board the authority to require such postings, or to penalize employers who fail to post. SHRM is also concerned that the language of the proposed notice does not accurately reflect the rights and obligations of employers and employees under the NLRA.
SHRM plans to submit comments to the rule and has invited state councils and chapters to sign on to this submission.
In addition, we encourage all interested SHRM members to make their views known to the NLRB. It’s important for federal rule-making entities to hear from HR professionals on issues that will have a direct impact on their workplaces.
