Employment Law Update Alert – April 2012

    By Labor & Employment

    The NLRB Posting Saga Goes Another Round: No Required Posting at this Time

    The NLRB’s revised effective date for the required union rights poster (April 30, 2012) has been indefinitely postponed. The federal appeals court for the District of Columbia issued an injunction on April 17 that prevents the NLRB from requiring the posting until the legal challenges to the posting are resolved. The Court ruled that the NLRB overstepped its authority in requiring the poster. Unlike other required government postings, such as EEO and minimum wage postings, the NLRB’s proposed 11X17 summary of employees’ union rights is not required by act of Congress. Rather, it is required by the NLRB’s own rule. Stay tuned for further updates.
