Effective Date for Posting NLRB Rights Notice Postponed . . . Again

Volume 11, Issue 3
April 17, 2012

In the April 11, 2012 edition of the Kamer Zucker Abbott Employer Report, we reported that employers who are covered by the National Labor Relations Act would be required to post a National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) notice regarding employees' rights in their workplaces beginning April 30, 2012.  As of this afternoon, however, the effective date for posting the NLRB notice has been postponed once again.  Earlier today, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia issued an order enjoining the NLRB from enforcing its rule, which would have required most private employers to post a notice informing employees of their rights under the National Labor Relations Act on April 30. In light of the Court's order, NLRB Chairman Mark Gaston Pearce issued a press release this afternoon announcing that the Board's Regional Offices will not implement the rule pending resolution of the issues before the Court.  As a result, employers are no longer required to post this notice as of April 30.  Kamer Zucker Abbott will continue to monitor this matter, and advise if and when a new posting date is established.  Please feel free to contact Kamer Zucker Abbott with any questions you may have.
