As of today, the National Labor Relations Board (“NLRB”) reversed course on its new notice requirement, which we have discussed in prior posts (here and here). The NLRB has pushed the posting requirement back to January 31, 2012 to allow for “enhanced education” and “outreach to employers.” You can read the press release here.
Though the NRLB just publicized its decision to delay the posting requirement today, there is already speculation about the reasons for the delay. It’s no secret many businesses were unhappy with the new posting requirement, not to mention a lawsuit attempting to block the posting requirement is currently pending in federal court. Whatever the reason, all workplaces can put the poster on hold for now.
We’ll continue to post updates as this story unfolds.
