We recently notified you that the National Labor Relations Board had issued a rule requiring employers covered by the National Labor Relations Act to post a new notice of labor rights. NLRA-covered employers would have been required to display a poster in the workplace by November 14, 2011, plus post the notice on the employers’ Intranet if that is where they normally displays workplace policies. Most private-sector employers are covered by this new rule.
As a result of lawsuits filed by employers and business groups, the NLRB had delayed implementation of the rule, postponing it until January 31, 2012. Now, the NLRB has agreed to an additional postponement to April 30, 2012. This additional delay will avoid the need for the parties to the lawsuit to fight over whether the court should issue a temporary injunction to prevent the rule from taking effect.
