NLRB poster appealed – for now!

Filed under: General HR Buzz9:41 am

Over the past year and a half, we have been following the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) proposal which would have required virtually all employers to post a notice about employees’ rights under the National Labor Relations Act (NLRA).  Those blogs can be found at these websites.

The rule, which was issued in 2011, was never implemented because of court challenges.  After going to the appeals court, a ruling was issued on May 7 that the Board exceeded its authority in its effort to require employers to post a notice of employee rights under the NLRA.  Probusiness groups are cheering, as the notice posting rule was expected to lead to more unionization and continued NLRB enforcement activity, especially for nonunion groups.

Will the NLRB appeal to the Supreme Court?  It is possible that could happen.  For now, however, employers no longer need to worry about the NLRB posting rule.  We will keep you updated on any future developments.
