National Labor Relations Board - NLRB Updates Workload of Division Judges in 2012

The National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) recently provided an update on the workload of its Division of Judges in 2012.  During 2012, Administrative Law Judges disposed of 645 cases. Of those 645 cases, the Judges issued 207 decisions and settled 438 cases.  According to the NLRB, "[t]he high ratio of settlements to decisions reflects a continuing effort by the Division to encourage the resolution of cases by the parties themselves, through judges’ involvement in pre-trial conference calls and on-site meetings."

The total case intake (many of which were resolved or withdrawn prior to assignment) increased slightly from the previous year -- 1,161 to 1,192.  If anything, these stats indicate that 2013 will be a busy year for the NLRB.

The full report can be found here.
