Executive Order 13496 provides that employees of government contractors and subcontractors must be informed of their rights to organize and form unions. The Department of Labor has issued final regulations implementing this Order. The regulations mandate that government contractors post an Employee Rights Notice. The Notice lists the basic rights under the National Labor Relations Act and tells employees how to register complaints if they believe their employer is interfering with those rights.
The Notice must be posted in a conspicuous place by June 21, 2010, when the regulations go into effect.
