NLRB Postpones Notice Posting Effective Date to April 30, 2012
December 27, 2011
On December 23, the National Labor Relations Board announced that it was postponing the effective date of its rule requiring covered employers to post a notice informing employees of their rights under the National Labor Relations Act. You can read the NLRB's press release here. The notice posting requirement was scheduled to take effect on January 31st, but has now been pushed back to April 30, 2012. The NLRB decided to postpone the notice posting effective date at the request of federal district court judge Amy Jackson who is presiding over a challenge to the NLRB's notice posting rule.
As a result of the NLRB's action, employers who are covered by the NLRA have more time to consider their options (an outline of recommendations was covered in a webinar hosted by Franczek Radelet in November) for responding to the notice posting requirement if it survives several pending legal and legislative challenges.
