4th Circuit Again Tells National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) To Pound Sand Over Board’s Direction That Employers Hang Paper

More controversially, the Board’s rule would have also made failure to post the Notice a separate violation of federal labor law, evidence of anti-union animus and would have extended the statute of limitations for all unfair labor practice charges filed against any employer who failed to comply with the posting requirement.
