As we informed you in our Legal Alert dated September 12, 2011, the National Labor Relations Board (“NLRB”) has adopted a final rule requiring employers covered by the National Labor Relations Act (“NLRA”) to post a notice informing employees of their rights under that law, including the right to form and join labor unions and the right to discuss wages among themselves. The NLRB originally announced November 14, 2011 as the effective date for this posting requirement. However, earlier this week, the NLRB postponed the effective date of its controversial new rule until January 31, 2012. The reason given for the postponement was to allow more time for the agency to educate employers about the posting requirement. Employers would be wise to take advantage of the postponement to familiarize themselves with the NLRA poster and to prepare for the impact it may have in the workplace. To help employers in that regard, Kilpatrick Townsend will be presenting a webinar on emerging issues in labor law, including the NLRA poster rules, later this fall. We expect to send out an announcement of the date and time for the webinar in the very near future.
