National Labor Relations Board / Department of Labor

NLRB "Snap Elections" & DOL "Persuader" Rules:

NLRB Poster Notification Rule:

  • NLRB's “poster” regulation is dead. In Aug 2013, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit denied a rehearing of its decision that the NLRB lacked statutory authority to promulgate the regulation. In, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia dismissed the Board’s petition to review its previous decision which held that the regulation violated employers’ free speech rights. After being rejected by two courts, the Board did not ask the U.S. Supreme Court to review either case before the Jan 2 deadline. This ends both the litigation over the rule and, ultimately, the rule itself.
