Employers in the process of posting the National Labor Relations Board's new collective bargaining rights notice this month can breathe a little easier. On December 27, the NLRB announced that it is extending the date for posting until April 30, 2012. The delay results from multiple legal challenges to the posting requirements. In announcing the delay, the NLRB stated that it would allow the resolution of these legal challenges before the new requirement takes effect.
Most U.S. employers would be required to post the notice, advising employees of their rights to collectively bargain and to seek union representation, including information for filing complaints against employers who violate these requirements. The poster is available here.
