4th Circuit invalidates NLRB poster rule

Decision calls into question the NLRB’s authority to create certain rules

The 4th Circuit has invalidated a National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) rule that had employers up in arms.

Last week, the court struck down a NLRB rule that required employers to hang posters in workplaces communicating to employees their right to unionize. The NLRB instituted the rule in 2011, to the dismay of employers, who believed the requirement violated their free speech rights.
