The National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) has again postponed the effective date of its employees’ rights notice posting. This time the postponement came at the request of the federal court in Washington, DC hearing a legal challenge regarding the rule. The Board determined that postponing the effective date of the rule facilitates the resolution of the legal challenges that have been filed with respect to the rule. The new employees’ rights notice posting requirement date is April 30, 2012.

As the posting requirement applies to many more employers than other federal employment posting requirements, employers should consult with a labor attorney prior to the April 30, 2012 to evaluate if the new rule requires their business to adhere to this new requirement and review their current postings.
