NLRB Postpones Implementation of Posting Requirement Rule Until 4.30.12

Today the National Labor Relations Board (“NLRB”) announced that it has again postponed implementation of its published rule requiring private sector employers subject to the National Labor Relations Act (“NLRA”) to post an official notice informing employees of their rights under the NLRA, and penalizing employers for non-compliance.

The NLRB decided to postpone implementation as a result of a request made by Judge Amy Berman Jackson of the U.S. District Court in connection with a consolidated lawsuit brought by the National Association of Manufacturers and the National Right to Work Legal Defense and Education Fund Inc. which alleges that the NLRB does not have statutory authority to implement such a rule. The NLRB had already postponed implementation until January 31 because of the litigation.
