LABOR & EMPLOYMENT ALERT: NLRB POSTPONES IMPLEMENTATION DATE FOR ITS NEW NOTICE-POSTING RULE

Labor & Employment Law Alert: The National Labor Relations Board has postponed the implementation date for its new notice-posting rule by more than two months in order to allow for enhanced education and outreach to employers, particularly those who operate small and medium sized businesses. The new effective date of the rule is January 31, 2012.  As of January 31, private-sector employers within the NLRB’s jurisdiction will be required to display the new Employee Rights poster where other workplace notices are posted. Employers who customarily post personnel rules or policies on an internet or intranet site must also provide a link to the rights poster from those sites. A free version of the poster was just made available via the NLRB’s website: http://www.nlrb.gov/news/nlrb-poster-employee-rights-now-available-download A copy of the NLRB postponement is available here: http://www.nlrb.gov/news/posting-employee-rights-notice-now-required-jan-31-board-postpones-deadline-allow-further-educa If you have any questions about how this requirement applies to your company, I invite you to contact either: Baltimore area: Howard Kurman at (443) 738-1517 or hkurman@offitkurman.com.  ABOUT OFFIT KURMAN Offit Kurman is one of the fastest-growing, full-service law firms in the Mid-Atlantic region.
