DOL Persuader Rule Due Out by April

January 16, 2013

stk318013rknThe Department of Labor (DOL) has indicated to White House Office of Management and Budget Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs (OIRA) that it plans to take final action on the “Persuader” or “Advice” rule proposed in June 2011 by April 2013.  See “Persuader Agreements: Employer and Labor Relations Consultant Reporting under the LMRDA”

NSBA urged the DOL to withdraw this proposed rule because it would impose a large burden on small businesses and is not justified by the underlying law.
