Court Enjoins NLRB Posting Requirement

Employment Law  

April 2012

As we reported earlier this month, a National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) requirement that most private sector employers display a poster providing employees with information on their rights under the National Labor Relations Act was to go into effect on April 30. This rule has been the subject of several legal challenges and NLRB delays in implementation.

On April 17, 2012, the District of Columbia Circuit Court of Appeals issued an injunction preventing the NLRB posting rule from going into effect until the Court resolves legal challenges to the rule.  The Court will not hear arguments on this issue until September.  This means employers will not be required to comply with the posting rule for at least the next several months. We will continue to monitor this matter and provide updates as developments occur.
