Medical Offices Must Post NLRB Notice by January 31

Most medical offices and healthcare facilities will be required to post a National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) poster advising employees of their rights under the National Labor Relations Act by January 31, 2012. The poster outlines employee rights to organize and prohibited conduct by employers and unions. Medical offices that generate a gross annual volume of $250,000 or more are under the jurisdiction of the NLRB and, therefore, the posting requirement applies to them. The notice should be posted in a conspicuous place where other workplace rights documents are posted. In addition, if the employer uses its website to advise employees of their rights, it must be posted there, too.

For further information about the posting, including a detailed discussion of which employers are covered by the NLRA, and what to do if a substantial share of the workplace speaks a language other than English, visit the NLRB website’s Frequently Asked Questions page where the poster may be downloaded free of charge.
