NLRB Postpones Effective Date of Notice Posting Rule to April 30, 2012

By Edwin S. Hopson

On December 23, 2011, the National Labor Relations Board announced that it had agreed to postpone the effective date of the employee rights notice-posting rule at the request of the federal judge in Washington, D. C. who is hearing one of the legal challenges to the notice posting rule. According to the Board’s press release, the NLRB’s ruling states that “it has determined that postponing the effective date of the rule would facilitate the resolution of the legal challenges that have been filed with respect to the rule.”

The new implementation date is set for April 30, 2012.
