Employers Don’t Need To Post NLRB Notice, For Now

Great news for employers!  The NLRB has issued a press release stating that it will not be implementing the rule requiring employers to post the new NLRB notice in the workplace as scheduled.  The new rule was scheduled to take effect on April 30, 2012.

In other words, employers don’t need to post the new NLRB notice in the workplace.  So, you can put those posters away in drawer someplace.  At least for now…

This announcement by the NLRB came as a result of an order issued by the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals against the NLRB, which temporarily enjoined the NLRB’s rule requiring the posting of the employee rights poster.  The D.C. Appeals Court has set a briefing schedule for May and June 2012, and will schedule oral arguments for September 2012.  Therefore, employers don’t need to worry about the NLRB poster until September 2012 at the earliest.
