On Friday, March 2, 2012, United States District Court for the District of Columbia Judge Amy Berman Jackson partially affirmed and partially struck down the National Labor Relations Board’s (“NLRB”) “Notification of Employee Rights Under the National Labor Relations Act” regulations in National Association of Manufacturers v. National Labor Relations Board, No. 1:11-cv-01629-ABJ (D.D.C. March 2, 2012). Judge Jackson, a recent Obama Administration appointee, found that the NLRB had the statutory power to require employers to post notices of an employee’s statutory rights. More importantly, she also ruled that the NLRB lacked the statutory authority to punish employers who fail to post the notices, in the manner contemplated by the regulations.
