- Excerpt from Court Rules NLRB's Workplace Union Notices Violated Law:

The National Labor Relations Board violated the law when it required U.S. businessesto put notices in their workplaces and on their websites informing employees of theirright to unionize, a federal appeals court ruled. A unanimous three-judge panel of theU.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit struck down the rule, findingthat federal law prohibits the labor board from punishing a business for speech, or lackof it, as long as the business does not issue threats.
