The National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) has postponed until Jan. 31, 2012, the implementation date for a new poster describing employee rights to join a union. The NLRB had originally required employers to display the poster in their workplaces by Nov. 14, 2011. In a statement, the NLRB said the two-and-a-half-month delay was a response to “queries from businesses and trade organizations indicating uncertainty about which businesses fall under the Board’s jurisdiction.” An NLRB representative told the Wall Street Journal that “many private-sector employers mistakenly think they are excluded “because they don’t have a unionized work force.”
