The National Labor Relations Board (“NLRB”) issued a Final Rule requiring most private-sector employers to notify employees of their rights to unionize. (See our first blog on New Employer Posting Requirements). The notice rule was originally scheduled require posting the rights in the workplace starting November 14, 2011, and then that date was postponed until January 31, 2012. Now, at the request of a federal court in Washington, D.C., the NLRB has agreed to defer the posting requirement for three months until April 30, 2012.
Employers should mark their calendar, and stay attentive to the continuing legal challenges.
