The Board issued a Notice and Invitation to File Briefs, inviting the parties and interested amici to address the following questions: (1) Should the Board modify its traditional make-whole remedy in all pending and future cases to include relief for consequential damages, where these damages are a direct and foreseeable result of a respondent’s unfair labor practice? (2) Alternatively, should the make-whole remedy include relief for consequential damages only upon findings of egregious violations by a respondent? (3) If consequential damages are to be included in make-whole relief, how should they be proved, and what would be required to demonstrate that they are a direct and foreseeable result of an employer’s unfair labor practice? (4) What considerations support making the proposed change to the Board’s traditional make-whole remedies? and (5) What considerations support retaining the Board’s traditional exclusion of consequential damages from its make-whole remedies?  The parties and amici may file briefs with the Board by December 27, 2021, with the parties permitted to file responsive briefs by January 11, 2022.
