NLRB Postpones Effective Date Of Employee-Rights Notice Rule Again

January 4, 2012 - On August 25, 2011, the National Labor Relations Board finalized a new rule that requires most private-sector employers to post a notice informing employees of their rights under the National Labor Relations Act.  The rule was originally scheduled to take effect in November 2011; however, on October 5, 2011, the NLRB announced that it was delaying the effective date until January 31, 2012.  Now, the NLRB has delayed implementation again, this time at the request of the federal court hearing a legal challenge to the rule.  Barring further developments, the rule will take effect and employers will be required to post the new NLRB employee-rights notice on April 30, 2012.
