WIRTW #216 (the “one that got away” edition)

One piece of news you may have missed this week involved a lawsuit filed seeking to block the NLRB’s impending workplace rights poster. The District Court for the District of Columbia upheld the NLRB’s right to require the poster, but invalidated certain portions related to penalties for non-compliance. All hope is not lost, as a similar lawsuit awaits ruling in a different federal court. And, the courts of appeals will have to have their say. For now, however, the poster is still on track for its April 30, 2012, debut in your workplace.

For more on this issue, I recommend the following, who have already covered it in much greater detail than me:
