NLRB postpones union poster requirement

November 3, 2011 By    

The National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) said it will wait more than two months to implement its new rule requiring most private businesses to display a poster that details workers’ rights to form a union. The board chose to postpone the effective date until Jan. 31, 2012, in order to allow for enhanced education and outreach to employers, particularly those who operate small- and medium-sized businesses. The decision to extend the rollout period followed queries from businesses and trade organizations indicating uncertainty about which businesses fall under the board’s jurisdiction, and it was made in the interest of ensuring broad voluntary compliance. Most private sector employers will be required to post the 11-by-17-inch notice, which is available at no cost from the NLRB through its website (, by downloading and printing or ordering a print by mail.
