Court Places Hold on Rule That Companies Must Display 'Employee Rights' Poster

A U.S. District Court has temporarily postponed a rule issued by the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) instructing employers to display a 11x17-in. poster informing workers of their right to unionize and bargain collectively. The rule was scheduled to take effect on April 30, 2012, and is widely opposed by business groups, including SEMA, over concerns that it unfairly promotes unionization. The poster requirement was originally scheduled to take effect last November but is currently being reviewed by the courts to determine its legality.
