This Just In: NLRB Posters Delayed Until Jan. 31, 2012

I just received an email from the NLRB including this press release. You may remember the new NLRB poster requirements (announced here, and posters available here)... well, I'll let the NLRB fill you in:
The National Labor Relations Board has postponed the implementation date for its new notice-posting rule by more than two months in order to allow for enhanced education and outreach to employers, particularly those who operate small and medium sized businesses.
The new effective date of the rule is Jan. 31, 2012.
Kudos to Jon Hyman who appears to have broken this story on his blog before I even got the NLRB email. He thinks that just maybe the delay has something to do with outcry from business groups and a pending lawsuit to block the requirement (I think he may be on to something).
