Q. We had the NLRB union-rights notice laminated and it is ready to be posted in our break room. Now the deadline is off. Can we still display it? — A.D., Washington
A. You can, but it’s more prudent to wait and see if the posting is required after the appeals process is exhausted. There is no upside in posting now. You will only run into questions that you may not be prepared to address.
After an appeals court issued an injunction halting the April 30 posting deadline, the requirement to display the poster has been postponed indefinitely.
The best strategy is to wait and see what the courts and NLRB decide this fall.
