Court Nixes NLRB Poster Rule

The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit became the second appellate court to strike down the National Labor Relations Board's (NLRB) August 2011 regulation requiring businesses to post notices of an employee's right to unionize, finding that the NLRB exceeded its authority when it ordered businesses to display an 11-by-17-inch notice in a prominent location explaining the rights of workers to join a union and bargain collectively. The U.S. Chamber of Commerce and South Carolina Chamber of Commerce had challenged the rule, which would have required postings by an estimated 6 million employers. The legal challenge is expected to head to the Supreme Court.
