BREAKING: NLRB postpones posting of notice of employee rights

Don’t rush to post the NLRB’s latest missive advising union and non-union employees of their rights under federal labor laws.

From the NLRB:

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 Jan. 31, 2012.

I wonder if the outcry from business groups, coupled with a pending lawsuit to block the workplace posting, has anything to do with the NLRB’s delay?
