Division of Judges

The NLRB's Administrative Law Judges docket, hear, settle and decide unfair labor practice cases nationwide, operating through offices in Washington, New York, and San Francisco.

The Division of Judges assigns cases approximately 3 weeks before the trial date, at which time the judges contact all parties in an attempt to settle the case and to resolve certain pre-trial or subpoena issues. For cases that do not settle, the judges make arrangements for the hearing. Upon close of the hearing, the judges consider the trial records and briefs, and write their decisions. A small number of cases result in bench decisions, which are delivered orally by the judge at the conclusion of the hearing.
