https://www.nlrb.gov/news/board-issues-final-rule-require-posting-nlra-r... National Labor Relations Board has issued a Final Rule that will require employers to notify employees of their rights under the National Labor Relations Act as of November 14, 2011.

Private-sector employers (including labor organizations) whose workplaces fall under the National Labor Relations Act will be required to post the employee rights notice where other workplace notices are typically posted...

...employees have the right to act together to improve wages and working conditions, to form, join and assist a union, to bargain collectively with their employer, and to refrain from any of these activities. It provides examples of unlawful employer and union conduct and instructs employees how to contact the NLRB with questions or complaints.

NRLA is more than 75 years old, but many employees do not know their rights and companies take advantage of that ignorance and use their position of power to their advantage.

i think this will be something like miranda for workers. a lot of people don't know their rights and feel pressured in the same kind of way by police to answer all questions and allow all searches. there are still ways police try to ask your permission in ways that don't seem like they're really asking, but miranda really does help with the situation.
