NLRB Postpones Implementation Date for Its New Notice-Posting Rule
In response to inquiries from businesses and pushback from trade organizations, according to the October 5, 2011 announcement, the National Labor Relations Board has postponed the implementation date for its new notice-posting rule. Instead of November 14, the new effective date is January 31, 2012. The additional time allows for enhanced education and outreach, mainly for small and medium sized employers.
The NLRB posting requirement results from the NLRB requirement that covered employers now must provide notice to employees about their unionization rights. Employers required to post the 11-by-17 inch notice may download and print the posting from the NLRB website, www.nlrb.gov.
