On April 17, 2012, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit enjoined an NLRB rule that was scheduled to go into effect for "all employers" on April 30, 2012. The rule would have required employers to post a notice informing all employees of certain labor law rights. This ruling enjoins the matter only while the court considers it further, meaning that no private employers are required to meet the posting requirement until further ruling from the court. The parties have been ordered by the court to submit briefs by the end of June, with the case to be argued in September. Thus, we expect no further action on this matter before September 2012.
This does NOT affect the obligations of government contractors who are currently required to post an NLRB "rights notice" as part of their conditions of contract.
