NRLB Posting Rule Now Enjoined

As a further update to the NLRB posting rule discussed at length in this blog, on April 17th, an emergency motion for injunction pending appeal was granted by United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia.  Essentially, this means that the posting rule will not go in effect at the end of April.  The Court ruling also states that the case will be set "for oral argument on an appropriate date in September 2012", so employers will not be required to comply with the posting rule until after the hearing.  A copy of the opinion can be found here.
