Update: NLRB Notice Posting Rule Delayed Indefinitely

On April 17, 2012, the DC Circuit issued an injunction delaying the effective date of the NLRB’s final rule requiring most employers to post a notice of employee rights in their workplaces. The final rule previously scheduled to take effect on April 30, 2012, has now been postponed indefinitely due to conflicting opinions issued by federal district courts.

In response, the NLRB announced its regional offices will not implement the disputed rule but the Agency will defend the rule in the DC Circuit and plans to appeal an adverse ruling that was issued by the US District Court for the District of South Carolina.

So then for the time being employers do not have to do anything with regard to this matter.
