The National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) has postponed the implementation date for its new notice-posting rule by more than 2 months in order to allow for enhanced education and outreach to employers, particularly those who operate small and medium sized businesses. The new effective date of the rule is January 31, 2012.

The decision to extend the rollout period followed questions from businesses and trade organizations indicating uncertainty about which businesses fall under the NLRB's jurisdiction, and was made in the interest of ensuring broad voluntary compliance.
According to the NLRB, no other changes in the rule, or in the form or content of the notice, will be made.
