NLRB again delays union rights posting requirement

The National Labor Relations Board has, once again, delayed the posting date for its new notice advising employees of their rights under the National Labor Relations Act, as discussed in our blog post on August 31, 2011. The new posting date is now April 30, 2012.

With its broad requirement that almost every private-sector employer—union and non-union—post the notice, the NLRB’s rule was almost immediately challenged by business groups as beyond the NLRB’s authority. Originally scheduled for posting in November 2011, the NLRB first delayed the notice until January 31, 2012 to give private-sector employers more time to understand and comply with the requirement. According to the NLRB’s recent announcement, this second delay came at the request of the federal court in Washington, DC, which is hearing a legal challenge regarding the posting requirement.

We will, of course, keep you “posted” on whether posting will be required on April 30th.
