The NLRB announced today that it was again postponing the requirement that all employers falling under its jurisdiction post notices in the workplace of employee rights under the National Labor Relations Act. The rule, originally slated to go into effect in November 2011, was first postponed due to litigation until January 30, 2012. The new implementation date is now April 30, 2012.
The controversial rule has been the subject of intense litigation since it was adopted during the Summer.

April 2012 is shaping up to be another super active month. That month is the date the new election rules are set to go into effect.
