I am a returning E-File user. Do I need to fill in Contact Information each time?

No.  If you access the E-File system using the link in any confirmation email you received when you E-Filed a document with the NLRB, you will not need to fill in contact information. 

First time users or returning E-file users who lost their previous E-File confirmation email(s) will have to reenter their contact information. 

What is E-File?

"E-File" is the system for submitting documents electronically pertaining to a case pending before the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB). The E-File system offers a quick and easy alternative to paper filings with the NLRB.  

What is the deadline for E-filing? Can I request an extension?

E-Filed documents must be filed using the Agency's website before midnight in the time zone of the receiving office. NLRB Official Office Hours, including for Regional Offices, are listed in Appendix A to the Board's Rules and Regulations, which can be found under the "Publications" tab on the home page of the NLRB's website. Requests for extension of time are made by completing an online form. You can request an extension of time through the NLRB's E-Filing System by clicking here.

Is technical assistance available after business hours?

Agency personnel are not available after the close of regular business hours to assist parties with E-Filing. If you are having difficulty after hours, you may try using a different computer. Temporarily removing pop-up blockers and changing your spam filter to allow receipt of messages from may expedite receiving a notification that your E-Filing has been received. A technical failure by the Agency's E-Filing system may excuse a late filing, but user-end problems will not. If user-end problems cannot be corrected before the 11:59 p.m.
