On January 6, 2014, the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) announced that it has decided not to seek Supreme Court review of two U.S. Court of Appeals decisions invalidating the NLRB’s Notice Posting Rule, which would have required most private sector employers to post a notice of employee rights in the workplace.

However, in its announcement the NLRB stated that it remains committed to "ensuring that workers, businesses and labor organizations are informed of their rights and obligations under the National Labor Relations Act" and noted that the now-invalidated workplace poster is still available on its web site if employers wish to “voluntarily” disseminate it to their workforce.
