June 4, 2010 by Butts
Beginning June 19, 2010 Federal contractors and subcontractors are required to post the Employee rights Under The National Relations Act (NLRA) notice. The notice informs employees about their rights under the NLRA to form, join, and assist a union, and to bargain collectively with their employer. Depending on the contracts your business is engaged in with the federal government, other postings may be mandatory. E-verify postings are also required for federal contractors. The requirement to post the employee notice be included in Federal contracts and subcontracts.The goal stated by the Department of Labor is to ensure that workers employed in the private sector as a result of Federal government contracts are informed of their rights to engage in union activity and collective bargaining. "Knowledge of such basic statutory rights promotes stable labor-management relations, thus reducing costs to the Federal government".
