NLRB Announces Mandatory E-Filing Policy, Effective Immediately
The Office of the General Counsel of the National Labor Relations Board (“NLRB” or “Board”) recently announced a new policy requiring all affidavits, correspondence, position statements, documentary or other evidence in connection with unfair labor practice or representation cases processed in Regional offices be submitted through the Agency’s electronic filing (“e-filing”) system.
The e-filing requirements do not apply to the filing of unfair labor practice charges or petitions in representation proceedings. Parties in such cases are encouraged to use the Agency’s e-filing system to file charges and petitions, but may continue to use regular mail, personal delivery, and/or facsimile to file and serve the documents.
While the e-filing requirement will be effective immediately, there will be a grace period through January 20, 2020. During the grace period, these documents will continue to be accepted when filed through means other than the e-filing system, including e-mail, fax or hand delivery.
