 Employee Rights under the National Labor Relations Act PDF

The Employee Rights under the National Labor Relations Act is a workplace posters poster by the Federal Department Of Labor. This is an optional poster, so while it is recommended that you post this if it is relevant to your employees, you are not required to by the Department Of Labor.

This poster describes the protection that those who are employed in relation to unions under the National Labor Relations Act (NLRA). Employees have the right not get harassed by either unions or employers, not to be discriminated against because of being in a union and be treated fairly by the union.

worker fired in violation of the law and to pay lost wages and benefits, and may order an employer or union to cease violating 
the law.  Employees should seek assist ance from the nearest regional NLRB office, which can be found on the Agency’s
