NLRB Poster Requirement Blocked

On April 20, 2012, in Labor Issues, by Tom

A federal appeals court on Tuesday temporarily blocked the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) from requiring employers to post a notice informing workers of their right to form a union.  The notice posting requirement was to take effect on April 30, 2012, but now there is no requirement to post the notice pending court review of the issue by the District of Columbia Court of Appeals.

While the notice posting requirement of the National Labor Relations Board is no longer going into effect April 30th, there is an existing posting requirement for federal contractors under federal executive orders that remains in effect, and that currently requires a similar notice.
