National Labor Relations Board Poster Requirement Delayed to April 30, 2012


The National Labor Relations Board's new rule, requiring businesses to post notices apprising workers of their right to unionize, has been postponed to April 30, 2012.

The  U.S. Chamber of Commerce, the National Federation of Independent Business and the National Association of Manufacturers, had filed suit to obtain a preliminary injunction to stop the implementation of the posting rule, stating that the promulgation of the rule exceeded the Board’s statutory authority. The judge requested the NLRB to postpone the effective date. The NLRB said that it had delayed the implementation date “to allow for enhanced education and outreach” to small and medium-sized businesses in particular. An NLRB spokeswoman said the decision to postpone the effective date had nothing to do with the lawsuits over the rule.

Search Tips:

You may use the wildcard symbol (*) as a root expander.  A search for "anti*" will find not only "anti", but also "anti-trust", "antique", etc.

Entering two terms together in a search field will behave as though an "OR" is being used.  For example, entering "Antique Motorcars" as a Client Name search will find results with either word in the Client Name.


AND and OR may be used in a search.  Note: they must be capitalized, e.g., "Project AND Finance." 

The + and - sign operators may be used.  The + sign indicates that the term immediately following is required, while the - sign indicates to omit results that contain that term. E.g., "+real -estate" says results must have "real" but not "estate".

To perform an exact phrase search, surround your search phrase with quotation marks.  For example, "Project Finance".

Searches are not case sensitive.
