NLRB Postpones Start Date for Contested New Poster
Topics: Legal Information
The NLRB announced today that it is postponing the implementation date for its recently issued employee-rights notice. The new effective date is January 31, 2012. The NLRB's stated reason for the postponement is to “allow for further education and outreach” in light of “queries from businesses and trade organizations . . . about which businesses fall under the Board's jurisdiction.” Coincidentally, however, the NLRB's newly required poster currently is under both legislative and legal attack. As reported in our prior post, legislation has been introduced to block implementation of the new poster, and lawsuits have been filed by various groups seeking to enjoin implementation. Stay tuned for further developments on this contested issue.
