All private employers who are subject to the National Labor Relations Act, with the exception of the U.S. Postal Service, will need to begin posting the notices by November 14, 2011. Copies of the notices are available at the NLRB website (see more here) and at regional offices. Failure to post the notice could be treated as an unfair labor practice under the National Labor Relations Act.
