New NLRB Posting Requirement Delayed

The National Labor Relations Board has postponed the effective date of a new regulation requiring most employers to post a notice informing employees of their right to unionize.  The previous effective date of November 14, 2011 has been extended to January 31, 2012.  Much controversy has surrounded the regulation, including pending lawsuits seeking to bar implementation.  The NLRB claims the reason for the delay is “to allow for enhanced education and outreach to employers, particularly those who operate small and medium sized businesses.”
