Federal Appeals Court Invalidates NLRB Poster Rule

May 8, 2013

pic-nlrb-laborThe National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) declared in a rule that employers subject to its jurisdiction (which is most employers) would be guilty of an unfair labor practice if they did not post a “Notification of Employee Rights under the National Labor Relations Act” on their properties and on their websites.

On May 7, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit held that the rule was invalid because the NLRB had no statutory authority to issue or enforce the rule.

The NLRB has not indicated whether it will seek a review by the Supreme Court.
