Health Care Employers Not Required to Post NLRB Notice Until Further Decision from the Courts

health care employersPreviously, the Foster Swift Health Care Law Blog notified you of an NLRB requirement for employers to display notices about employees' rights to organize a union.  The notice requirement was delayed, and employers were not required to post the notice until April 30, 2012.  On April 17, 2012, the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia granted an emergency motion for injunction pending appeal and for expedited consideration related to the notice requirement.  This was discussed in Foster Swift’s recent Employment, Labor & Benefits E-News.  In particular, it is important to note that this court's decision means that employers are not required to post the notice until the court rules on the NLRB's authority to promulgate such a requirement.  Oral arguments on this issue are expected to occur in September, 2012.  Foster Swift's Employment, Labor & Benefits E-News and Health Care Law Blog will keep you posted on this issue.
