Must federal contractors post two NLRA rights posters?


Your organization is a federal contractor with contracts worth more than $100,000. As such, it already posts the Labor Department’s “Notice of Employee Rights under the National Labor Relations Act.” Now that the National Labor Relations Board has announced a posting requirement, will your organization need to post both notices of employee rights under the NLRA?


No. As an independent executive agency that is not under the umbrella of the Labor Department, the NLRB does not have the authority to change Labor Department requirements, nor does the Labor Department have authority over the NLRB’s rules. And while the NLRB’s rule does apply to federal contractors who are already required by the Labor Department to post a similar notice, the Board says that federal contractors will satisfy the NLRB’s posting requirement if they post the Labor Department’s notice.
