The National Labor Relations Board has once again extended the effective date for its new poster requirement. The new effective date is April 30, 2012. The original compliance deadline was November 14, 2011, but was first extended to January 31, 2012 in order to foster compliance amidst employer confusion whether the new rule applied to them. Other than the new effective date, the posting requirement remains unchanged since our original alert. The Board does, however, continue to update answers to frequently asked questions, found here. As more fully discussed in our previous alert (sent September 26, 2011 and accessible here), the new posting requirement is designed to better inform employees of their rights under the NLRA.
