DC Circuit Rebuffs NLRB's Request for Reconsideration in NFIB's Notice Poster Victory

WASHINGTON, D.C., September 4, 2013 -  Executive Director of the NFIB Small Business Legal Center Karen Harned issued the following statement in response to the DC Circuit Court denying the National Labor Relations Board’s request that the Court reconsider its decision on the “Notice Posting Rule.”

“Today’s decision just re-confirms the DC Circuit Court’s previous ruling that the NLRB’s “Notice Posting Rule” is unconstitutional. Earlier this year the Court found that the Board did not possess the authority to require that the posters be displayed in places of business. In fact, eight different judges in two circuit courts have heard cases on the poster rule and they have all found something wrong with it. The Court’s ruling today is a victory for small-business owners across this country who have been subject to the illegal actions of a labor board that has continued to try to push union organizing.”

Karen Harned, Executive Director of the Small Business Legal Center is available for comment.
