The National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) has further postponed the effective date of its employee rights notice-posting rule at the request of the federal court in Washington, DC hearing a legal challenge regarding the rule, in order to facilitate the resolution of the legal challenges that have been filed with respect to the rule. The new implementation date for the rule is April 30, 2012.
As a result of the postponement, most private sector employers will be required to post the 11-by-17-inch employee rights poster beginning on April 30, 2012. The notice is available at no cost from the NLRB through its website, either by downloading and printing or you may also fill out this form or call 202-273-0064 and copies will be mailed free of charge.
For further information about the jurisdiction and posting requirements for the new notice, please see the NLRB's Frequently Asked Questions, which will be updated regularly as new questions arise. For questions that do not appear on the list, or to arrange for an NLRB presentation on the rule, employers may contact the agency at firstname.lastname@example.org or 866-667-NLRB.
