D.C. Circuit invalidates NLRB posting requirement

Requiring businesses to post notices of employees’ rights violates freedom of speech, court rules

The D.C. Circuit struck another blow to the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) on Tuesday, when it found that the board could not require businesses to post notices informing employees of their right to unionize.

In January, the D.C. Circuit invalidated President Obama’s recess appointments to the NLRB, throwing it into a state of uncertainty. This latest decision invalidates one of the NLRB’s biggest pro-labor pushes before that happened.
