UPDATE: Deadline for Posting Notice of Employee Rights Under the National Labor Relations Act Indefinitely Postponed

PRACTICE GROUPS

Tuesday, the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia issued an order barring the National Labor Relations Board (“NLRB”) from enforcing the rule requiring nearly all private sector employers to post a notice of certain employee rights under the National Labor Relations Act. The Court has postponed implementation of the rule until it is able to decide an appeal by the National Association of Manufacturers from a D.C. District Court’s ruling affirming the NLRB’s authority to issue this rule. Last Friday, in a separate case, the United States District Court for the District of South Carolina rejected the rule as exceeding the NLRB’s authority. As we have alerted you before, this rule has been postponed several times since it was issued last fall. The rule may be revived once the Court decides the appeal later this year. Stay tuned for more developments.
