WASHINGTON — The National Labor Relations Board has postponed the implementation date for its new notice-posting rule 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.
The decision to extend the rollout period from November followed queries from businesses and trade organizations indicating uncertainty about which businesses fall under the Board’s jurisdiction, and was made in the interest of ensuring broad voluntary compliance. No other changes in the rule, or in the form or content of the notice, will be made, NLRB says.
Most private-sector employers will be required to post the 11-by-17-inch notice, which is available at no cost from the NLRB through its website, either by downloading and printing or ordering a print by mail.
