NLRB Will Not Seek Review of Court Decisions Invalidating Poster Rule

The National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) has decided not to seek Supreme Court review of two U.S. Court of Appeals decisions invalidating the NLRB’s Notice Posting Rule, which would have required most private sector employers to post a notice of employee rights in the workplace. The workplace poster remains available on the NLRB website.  It may be viewed, displayed and disseminated voluntarily.
