Notification of Employee Rights Under the National Labor Relations Act
On August 30, 2011, the National Labor Relations Board (Board) published a final rule requiring employers subject to the National Labor Relations Act (NLRA) to post notices informing their employees of their rights as employees under the NLRA. (76 FR 54006, August 30, 2011.) On October 12, 2011, the Board amended that rule to delay the effective date from November 14, 2011, to January 31, 2012. (76 FR 63188, October 12, 2011.) The Board later further amended the rule to delay the effective date from January 31, 2012, to April 30, 2012. (76 FR 82133 December 30, 2011.) On April 17, 2012, in light of conflicting decisions at the district court level, the D.C. Circuit entered an injunction pending appeal further delaying the effective date of the rule. National Association of Manufacturers v. NLRB (12-5068 D.C. Cir. April 17, 2012) citing Chamber of Commerce v. NLRB (11-02516 D.S.C. April 13, 2012) (finding Board lacked authority to issue rule). The purpose of this notice is to announce that delay in the effective date of the rule.
