Late Friday, a South Carolina federal Court struck down the National Labor Relations Board's recently-promulgated employee rights notice-posting regulation. The regulation, set to go into effect April 30, 2012, requires employers, including motor carriers and other transportation companies, to post a notice informing employees of their rights to engage in union and other protected, concerted activity. The Court recognized that the NLRB had only the authority granted to it by Congress and that the NLRB exceeded that authority. The Court's ruling contradicts last month's finding by a D.C. federal Court that Congress in fact granted broad power to the NLRB, which included power to require the proposed notice-posting. The NLRB has not yet commented on the ruling, nor has it formally suspended the April 30 effective date of the regulation. We will continue to monitor the matter as the proposed implementation date approaches.
