Employers can take down NLRA rights notices

After several years of court consideration of the National Labor Relations Board’s (NLRB) late 2011 National-Labor-Relations-Act employee rights notice posting rule, the NLRB has effectively abandoned the requirement.

The original NLRB rule required employers to post a notice informing employees of their right to join a union, collectively bargain or otherwise consolidate their efforts to seek increased wages or improved working conditions.

After both the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia and the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit both invalidated the notice, the NLRB failed to meet its January 2014 deadline to file a petition with the United States Supreme Court.  Thus, the LNRB has effectively abandoned the requirement and any employer complying with the original 2011 NLRB rights posting requirement can now remove those postings without penalty.
