COURT UPHOLDS NLRB POSTING RULE

On March 2, a federal court in the District of Columbia held that the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) does have the authority to issue a rule requiring that employers post a notice of employees’ rights under the National Labor Relations Act and that this rule does not violate the employers’ constitutional rights.

As discussed in the Winter 2012 Labor & Employment Newsletter (click here to view), the NLRB recently issued this rule and posted a sample notice on its website. A consortium of company representatives, including the National Association of Manufacturers, challenged the rule in court, and the NLRB delayed the effective date of the rule. As a result of the District of Columbia court’s decision, the rule is currently slated to go into effect on April 30, 2012.
