U.S. Court of Appeals Temporarily Blocks Display of NLRB Collective Bargaining Rights Poster

With the April 30, 2012, posting deadling fast approaching, the U.S. Court of Appeals in Washington, D.C. has temporarily blocked the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) from requiring employers to display posters explaining collective bargaining rights.

The proposed "poster rule" was challenged by the National Association of Manufacturers, the National Right to Work Legal Defense, the Education Foundation, and other business lobby groups.  They argued that the NLRB's poster proposal would negatively affect approximately 6 million employers who are otherwise exempt from NLRB regulations.  Untill such time as we hear more from the Court, employers need not post this poster.
