NLRB Union Poster Rule Struck Down

By: BrownWinick

On May 7, 2013, the D.C. Circuit vacated the National Labor Relations Board’s (“NLRB”) rule requiring employers to display posters regarding employees’ right to unionize, bargain and protest. The court found that the NLRB rule was unenforceable under federal labor law. The rule treated the failure to post as evidence of anti-union animus in cases involving terminations or refusals to hire.  The rule had previously been placed on hold.
