The National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) announced on December 23, 2011 that it has agreed to postpone the effective date of its rule that requires U.S. employers to post a notice of employee rights under the National Labor Relations Act (NLRA) until April 30, 2012.
This is the second time the new notice has been postponed. The new rule with accompanying poster was originally scheduled to take effect on November 14, 2011. After lawsuits were filed against the NLRB this past fall challenging the NLRB’s authority to implement the rule, the NLRB announced in October it was postponing the effective date to of the new rule
until January 31, 2012. This second postponement to April 30, 2012 comes via a request from the U.S. District Court Judge who recently heard oral arguments with respect to one of the lawsuits. 12.27.2011
