The Perfect Storm? DOL Implements Final Regulation on Posting Notice of Employees' Organizing Rights Under the National Labor Relations Act.

Executive Order 13496 requires covered contractors to post a notice that notifies employees of their union organizing rights under the National Labor Relations Act.

Effective June 21, 2010, all federal contractors with a contract in excess of $100,000 must post the notice required by the Executive Order. The final regulation does not apply to public sector employers and employers covered by the Railway Labor Act. In enforcing EO 13496, the federal government may direct a contracting agency to cancel, terminate, or suspend any contract for failure of the contractor to comply with the notice. The government may also issue a debarment order that would prohibit the contractor from entering into a federal contract or subcontract. The Office of Federal Contracts Compliance Programs (OFCCP) will likely consider whether the notice has been posted and complied with during an audit of the contractor.

Bennet Alsher and David Hagaman will present a one hour complimentary webinar that not only will cover the final regulation, but also will suggest proactive steps employers can take now to prepare.
