UPDATE: Deadline for Posting Notice of Employee Rights Under the National Labor Relations Act Extended a Second Time to April 30, 2012


Last 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”). The NLRB later postponed the effective date of this rule from November 14, 2011 to January 31, 2012. Recently the NLRB announced that the deadline for posting has been extended a second time from January 31, 2012 to April 30, 2012. According to the NLRB, postponing the effective date of the rule will facilitate the resolution of the legal challenges that have been filed with respect to the rule. 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.
