FAQs with the new NRLA poster

Q: What if my business is non-unionized? Do I still have to comply?
A: Yes, this new poster is mandatory regardless of your company’s union status. It applies to union and non-union workplaces alike.

Q: It says “nearly” all employers have to post the new notice. What are the exceptions?
A: At this time, the requirement does not apply to agricultural, railroad or airline employers -- or the U.S. Postal Service.

Q: Will this be a separate posting?
A: No, it will be added to the current Federal Poster. Consequently, the poster will be larger – increasing from 24” x 26 ¾” to 24” x 32.75”.

Q: Are there any other posting requirements?
A: Yes, the notice must be posted in other languages if 20 percent or more of your workforce is not proficient in English. In addition to providing a Spanish version on the Spanish Federal Poster, we will create versions in other languages if there’s a demand.

Q: What are the penalties for non-compliance?
A: There is no specific fine connected with this posting. However, noncompliance can be treated as an “unfair labor practice” and can be used as damaging evidence in a lawsuit.
