1100.02000 – Investigation of Charge
While the Board agent’s duties include assisting the charging party in stating the proper form of the charge, making inquiries and reviewing the charge and any accompanying materials, the duty remains with the charging party to provide a clear and concise statement of the facts. The purpose of the Board agent’s review is to determine if the charge states sufficient facts that, if proven, would constitute an unfair practice. It is incumbent upon the charging party to provide such facts to the Board agent, not merely to assert that the factual information will be made available at a later time.
