UPDATE: Deadline for Posting Notice of Employee Rights Under the National Labor Relations Act Extended to January 31, 2012


Earlier this fall we issued an update alerting you that the National Labor Relations Board (“NLRB”) had issued a rule which will require nearly all private sector employers (both union and non-union) to post a notice informing employees of certain rights under the National Labor Relations Act (“NLRA”). Recently the NLRB announced that the deadline for posting has been extended from November 14, 2011 to January 31, 2012. According to the NLRB, the deadline is being extended to allow for enhanced education and outreach to employers, particularly those who operate small and medium sized businesses. The NLRB has made the poster available on its website at www.nlrb.gov/poster.

Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions of if we may assist you with understanding and complying with the NLRB’s new rule, or with any other labor or employment-related matter.
