Court upholds NLRB Notice Posting requirement but invalidates certain enforcement sanctions
On March 3, 2012, the federal district court in the District of Columbia ruled that the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) has sufficient rulemaking authority under the National Labor Relations Act (NLRA) to require most private sector employers to post workplace notices that inform employees of their rights under the NLRA.
The effective date for compliance with the NLRB rule, originally November 14, 2011, had been postponed to April 30, 2012, pending court review. Several business organizations, including the Coalition for a Democratic Workplace, challenged the rule and its enforcement provisions in court on various grounds. Learn more.
