NLRB Update: Notice No Longer Required
Last year, we informed you that the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) issued new rules requiring most employers to post a new employee rights poster by April 30, 2012. Last Friday, a federal court in South Carolina ruled that the NLRB did not have the authority to require employers to post the notice. The decision conflicts with an earlier decision by the federal court in Washington D.C. The Court of Appeals for the United States District Court in Washington D.C. has issued a temporary injunction enjoining the NLRB's rule requiring the posting. On April 17, 2012, the NLRB announced that it will not implement the rules requiring the new poster until the issue has been resolved by the courts. As a result, employers are no longer required to post the notice.
