1104.03000 – Proposed Decision
The expedited decision procedure adopted by the Board allows the parties to waive preparation of the written transcript of the formal hearing and requires the ALJ to issue a proposed decision within 30 days of the close of the case, if possible. Generally, this procedure is implemented upon agreement of the parties. Although charging party did not expressly agree to the expedited decision procedure, no prejudice was found as the decision relied upon a credibility determination; pp. 3-4.
