On August 25, 2011, the National Labor Relations Board issued new regulations requiring private-sector employers to post a notice advising employees of their rights to unionize under the National Labor Relations Act. The NLRB’s rationale is that a) too many employees were unaware of their right to form or join a union and b) the National Labor Relations Act has been the only major federal workplace law without a notice of rights posting requirement.
