NLRB Launches Employee Rights App

Now that two federal appellate courts have invalidated the National Labor Relations Board’s rule requiring private sector employers to post a notice informing employees of their rights under the National Labor Relations Act, the Board has developed a new way to disseminate this information.  On August 30, 2013, the Board launched a mobile app that “provides employers, employees and unions with information regarding their rights and obligations under the National Labor Relations Act.”

This app links to sections of the NLRA describing the rights enforced by the Board, as well as contact information for NLRB regional offices.  In addition, the app “details the process the NLRB uses in elections held to determine whether employees wish to be collectively represented.”  The free app is available for both iPhone and Android users.
