On December 23, 2011, the National Labor Relations Board ("NLRB") announced that it is postponing the effective date of its employee rights notice-posting rule. The postponement was made in response to a request of a federal court in Washington, D.C. that is currently hearing a legal challenge to the proposed rule. The Board's decision to postpone states that it has "determined that postponing the effective date of the rule would facilitate the resolution of the legal challenges that have been filed with respect to the rule." Barring the success of those legal challenges, the new implementation date for the notice-posting rule will be April 30, 2012.
