NLRB’s posting requirement delayed – again

Posted in Posting & Notice Requirements tagged , , , , , , , at 1:08 am by Tom Jacobson

The National Labor Relations Board has again delayed the effective date of its new employee-rights posting requirement.  The requirement, which initially was to have gone into effect on November 14, 2011 was postponed until January 31, 2012.  Now, the NLRB has delayed the mandate again, and the posters will not be required until April 30, 2012.

In a statement issued December 23, 2011 the NRLB said that it has agreed to postpone the effective date at the request of a Washington, DC federal court which is hearing a legal challenge to the rule. According to the NRLB, “[I]t has determined that postponing the effective date of the rule would facilitate the resolution of the legal challenges that have been filed with respect to the rule.”

If the requirement ultimately withstands the pending legal challenges and goes into effect, most private sector employees will be required to post the notice which can be downloaded from the NLRB’s website.
