NLRB Postpones Deadline For Posting Notice

The National Labor Relations Board announced recently its decision to postpone the implementation date for its new notice-posting rule. Previously, the Board's new notice-posting rule required employers to post the 11x17 inch poster no later than November 14, 2011. That date has been delayed until January 31, 2012.

In a press release, the Board indicated that the rule's effective date was delayed "by more than two months in order to allow for enhanced education and outreach to employers, particularly those who operate small and medium sized businesses." The Board indicated that it had received a number of questions from business and trade organizations that suggested uncertainty about which businesses are covered by the new requirement.

Other than the effective date, no other changes in the rule, or in the form or content of the notice, will be made.
