NLRB Delays Notice-Posting Rule… Again

Posted December 28, 2011 Company News

Back on August 25, 2011, the National Labor Relations Board issued a final rule, mandating that private sector employers subject to the National Labor Relations Act (NLRA) post a notice readily seen informing employees of their rights under the NLRA. This notice requirement applies to virtually all private sector employers regardless of whether the workforce is unionized.

Later on October 5, 2011, as a result of numerous queries from businesses and trade organizations regarding the new requirement, the NLRB postponed the implementation date of this new notice-posting rule to January 31, 2012.

And now again, just days following a U.S. District Court judge’s suggestion that this requirement be delayed, the NLRB announced on December 23, 2011, that the effective date for this new notice-posting requirement will postponed to April 30, 2012.
