On October 5, 2011, the National Labor Relations Board announced that it has postponed the implementation date for its new notice-posting rule to January 31, 2012.  It had originally been scheduled to become effective on November 14, 2011. 

The U.S. Chamber of Commerce and the National Association of Manufacturers have filed suit to block the new rule, but there has been no ruling in those cases. 

The NLRB cited as reasons for the extension, the need for more time “in order to allow for enhanced education and outreach to employers, particularly those who operate small and medium sized businesses.”  No other changes in the rule, or in the form or content of the notice, were made.

 Member BrianE.Hayes, who dissented from the original adoption of the rule, agreed with the postponement of the effective date of the rule.
