JOHN R. LaBAR – Client Alert on NLRB Employee Rights Poster: Federal Court Upholds Rule. April 30 Deadline Still Applies.
On March 2, Judge Amy Berman Jackson, United States District Court Judge for the District of Columbia, upheld the National Labor Relations Board’s rule requiring most employers, including employers without any union employees, to post a notice of employees’ rights under the National Labor Relations Act. The Court however, did strike down portions of the Rule that deemed an employer’s failure to comply with the notice’s posting requirement to be an unfair labor practice and that tolled the statute of limitations for filing an unfair labor practice charge during the period when the notice was not posted. Unless the Court’s ruling is overturned or stayed in the next few weeks, the Rule will take effect on April 30, 2012.
