On October 5, the National Labor Relations Board extended the implementation deadline for its notice posting rule from November 14 to January 31, 2012. 

As a result of this delay, nearly all private sector employers will now be required to post a notice that outlines employee rights under the National Labor Relations Act (NLRA) by January 31, 2012. 

Authorized posters can be downloaded here.

Please note that this announcement does not impact the current requirement that certain federal contractors must post NLRA employee rights in their workplaces. That requirement was established by President Obama’s Executive Order signed on January 30, 2009.
