NLRA Posting Notice Requirement Delayed Until January 31, 2012

On October 5th, the National Labor Relations Board extended the implementation deadline for its notice posting rule from November 14th to January 31, 2012.

As a result of this delay, nearly all private sector employers will now be required to post a notice that outlines employee rights under the National Labor Relations Act (NLRA) by January 31, 2012. Authorized posters can be downloaded from the National Labor Relations website.

Please note that this announcement does not impact the current requirement that certain federal contractors must post NLRA employee rights in their workplaces. That requirement was established by President Obama’s Executive Order signed on January 30, 2009.
