October 14, 2011 - According to BNA, there is a delay in the ruling from the National Labor Relations Board in regard to federal labor law posting requirements. Originally scheduled for Nov. 14, a controversial ruling about requirements for private employers has been moved to Jan. 31, 2012.

This ruling is in motion to set requirements for private employers in the U.S. to post a notice, which informs employees what their rights are under federal labor law. This ruling was met with some opposition when it was first introduced in Dec. 2010.

It specifically requires that an 11x17 inch poster, which explains the rights of employees, be posted. Even companies that utilize electronic sources of communication will be required to post it.

The reason for the delay in this ruling is to make it clearer which businesses and trade organizations would be required to follow this and to educate more businesses of the federal policy; however, the delay could also result in challenges from federal judges.
