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. Under this rule, most private-sector employers would be required to display a poster in the workplace, plus post the notice on an employer’s Intranet if that is where they normally display workplace policies.
As a result of lawsuits filed by employers and business groups in federal court in the District of Columbia, the NLRB had delayed implementation of the rule. The court recently ruled in favor of the NLRB, which would have required the posting effective April 30. There has now been an appeal of the court’s ruling, and the appeals court has suspended the posting requirement pending the appeal.
We will notify you if the posting requirement again becomes effective. In the meantime, employers are not required to post the notice, but may do so voluntarily. The 11 by 17 inch poster is available HERE.
