The National Labor Relations Board announced today that it 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.
The decision to extend the rollout period followed complaints from businesses and trade organizations indicating uncertainty about which businesses fall under the Board’s jurisdiction. No other changes in the rule, or in the form or content of the notice, will be made.
