NLRB - Effective Date of Mandatory Employee Rights Poster Delayed

Author: Li-An C. Leonard

Last August, the National Labor Relations Board (“NLRB”) issued a final rule requiring most private employers, regardless of whether they are unionized or not, to post a mandatory poster notifying employees of their rights under the National Labor Relations Act (“NLRA”).  The NLRB’s authority to require employers to post such a notice was immediately challenged in court by several employer groups.

In light of conflicting rulings at the district court level regarding the NLRB’s authority, the DC Circuit Court of Appeals temporarily stopped the NLRB’s rule requiring the posting of the employee rights poster.  Pending resolution of this conflict, the NLRB is delaying its April 30, 2012 deadline for posting the mandatory employee rights poster.

You can monitor the status of the mandatory employee rights poster by visiting the NLRB’s website. In addition, if you have questions relating to the NLRB’s mandatory employee rights poster, the NLRB has published responses to frequently asked questions. Or, feel free to contact one of DSMW’s employment attorneys with any questions you may have.
