NLRB Makes New Poster Available Amid Legal and Legislative Challenges to Rule Requiring Its Posting


As we reported in late August, the NLRB announced a final rule requiring private sector employers to post a notice of employee rights under the NLRA. This past week, the NLRB published copies of its new poster. A copy is available from the NLRB website. Employers have the option of downloading a single 11” x 17” poster, or two 8.5” x 11” posters. Copies are also available at the Board’s regional offices. The final rule requires employers to begin displaying these posters by November 14, 2011.

Meanwhile, the National Association of Manufacturers (NAM) has filed a lawsuit in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia challenging the rule. NAM’s complaint argues that “[t]he Board's promulgation of the Rule is in excess of the Board’s statutory jurisdiction, authority, limitation, and rights.” The NAM’s complaint requests that the court permanently enjoin the NLRB from “implementation, enforcement, and application of the Rule.”
