Not So Fast: NLRB Delays Employer Posting Requirements
As we wrote in February and explained in our client briefing in September, the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) issued a proposed rule that requires employers to post a notice informing employees of their rights under the National Labor Relations Act (NLRA). The posting requirement would apply only to private-sector employers subject to the NLRA, which excludes agricultural, railroad and airline employers.
On October 5, the NLRB delayed the deadline for compliance from November 14, 2011 to January 31, 2012 “in order to allow for enhanced education and outreach to employers, particularly those who operate small and medium sized businesses.” The NLRB has not changed the text of the notice, the requirements for posting, or the consequences of failing to post (all topics we addressed in our February article).
