Federal labor relations authority issues final rule making eFiling available to all parties
The Federal Labor Relations Authority (FLRA) has published a final rule regarding its initiative to make electronic filing (eFiling) available to parties in all cases before the FLRA. The rule would become effective 30 days from its publication in the Federal Register and interested parties can submit comments to firstname.lastname@example.org or sent to the Office of General Counsel, Federal Labor Relations Authority, Suite 200, 1400 K Street, N.W., Washington, DC 20424–0001.
The final rule is the third stage of the FLRA’s eFiling initiative. In this stage, parties will be able to use the agency’s eFiling system to file certain documents involved in representation and unfair labor practice proceedings. The rule also clarifies some of the procedural regulations as required under the Plain Writing Act of 2010, and specifically details the FLRA’s current practice of requiring parties to serve Regional Directors with applications for review.
