NLRB holds off on implementing worker rights poster requirement

Did you hear that? That’s the collective sigh of relief from employers who have been sweating the upcoming deadline to implement a National Labor Relations rule that would have required them to post what they see as a very pro-union notice in every workplace.

The NLRB agreed last week to postpone the effective date of the employee rights notice posting after a federal court in Washington, D.C., requested that the board hold off until after a hearing of a legal challenge of the rule.

The new implementation date is April 30, 2012, which will allow time to resolve legal challenges.

On the implementation date, most private sector employers will be required to post an 11-by-17-inch notice. See the notice here. It is available at no cost from the NLRB through its website, www.nlrb.gov.
