• The National Association of Manufacturers (NAM) filed a lawsuit against the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB), alleging that the NLRB’s regulation requiring employers to post a notification of employee rights is invalid. The complaint, which was filed in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia alleges that the National Labor Relations Act (NLRA) does not permit the NLRB to require such a notice posting by employers not involved in representation cases or unfair labor proceedings. The complaint also alleges that the NLRB has no authority to create and promulgate a new unfair labor practice or toll the statue of limitations for filing an unfair labor practice charge if the employer fails to abide by the posting regulations. Nat’l Ass’n of Mfrs. v. NLRB. As a consequence, the NLRB voted October 5, 2011, to postpone the effective date from November 14, 2011 to January 31, 2012, in order to give the court time to rule on the legality of the requirement.
