The NLRB Posting Saga Goes Another Round: No Required Posting at this Time

April 25, 2012, 12:18 PM

A federal court in the District of Columbia has issued an order temporarily enjoining the NLRB from enforcing its rule requiring the posting of a general notice informing employees of their rights to join a union under Section 7 of the National Labor Relations Act. The posting rule was scheduled to take effect on April 30, 2012. Our report on the issuance of this rule can be found here.

As a result of that decision and others questioning the validity of the NLRB's rule, the NLRB has issued a statement explaining that "regional offices will not implement the rule pending the resolution of the issues before the court."

Until further notice, employers do not need to post the notice. Stay tuned, as we will continue to monitor the fate of this rule. --David J. Sullivan
