1107.00000 – CASE PROCESSING PROCEDURES;PROCEDURES BEFORE THE BOARD
1107.01000 – Exceptions; Responses to Exceptions; Standing; Extensions of Time/Late Filing/Waiver

The Board in this consolidated matter granted two Charging Parties’ appeal from an administrative determination which rejected their joint exceptions as untimely. The Board noted that the parties’ stipulation that they intended and understood one Charging Party’s request for an extension of time was on behalf of all Charging Parties was a reasonable and credible explanation for the untimely filing. Further, the Board noted that the confusion caused by the multiple parties and consolidated proceedings distinguished the circumstances from instances where the Board has found an attorney error is not good cause for late filing.
