Put away those new NLRB posters - for now

The D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals has stopped the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) from enforcing the new notice-posting rule that was scheduled to take effect on April 30, 2012.

The rule would have required employers to post a new notice informing employees of their rights under the National Labor Relations Act (NLRA), and to do so in a conspicuous place.  Failure to post the notice could have been considered an unfair labor practice by the NLRB. 

Enforcement of the rule is suspended while the court determines whether the Board does in fact have the authority to require employers to post the new notice. So you can put those new NLRB posters aside - for now. We’ll keep you informed about how the court rules.
