The deadline for posting the NLRA poster (National Labor Relations Act) has been postponed for the third time – this time until September at the earliest.

A three-judge panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia issued an injunction today against implementation of the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) posting rule, pending appeal.

The injunction is in effect until a decision is made in the appeal of the D.C. District Court decision in National Association of Manufacturers v. the NLRB, which found that the NLRB posting rule was lawful.  The final phase of the appeal is set for the month of September.

The federal  judges panel referred to the April 13th decision of the U.S. District Court for South Carolina in U.S. Chamber of Commerce v. the NLRB, which conflicted with the D.C. court ruling.  The South Carolina decision struck down the NLRB’s poster rule, stating that the NLRB does not have the authority to issue a poster requirement.

Poster Compliance Center will continue to closely monitor the situation and advise employers of any significant future developments.
