A tentative draft Guide to Board Procedures has been prepared under the auspices of the Office of the Executive Secretary to assist parties in complying with the Board's Rules and Regulations and administrative practices. The Guide is intended to assist the practitioner who is generally familiar with the Board's procedural requirements, but it is especially designed to help those with little or no familiarity with those rules. The Guide covers filing requirements, and answers questions concerning many other procedures and practices. It includes, among other helpful provisions, a quick reference guide for unfair labor practice case filings, a checklist for preparing exceptions, cross-exceptions, and briefs, and a number of helpful hints on how to avoid common filing mistakes. The Guide also includes a table of contents that facilitates finding the rules that pertain to particular areas of concern quickly and easily.
