Updates – NL Labour Relations Board
The Board would like to provide updates about several recent developments.
Any questions related to these or any other general inquiries should be addressed to the Secretary to the Chair using the contact information below.
The Board continues to provide its services on a remote basis as outlined in a Notice that was circulated by the Law Society of NL on behalf of the Board on March 19, 2020 (see https://lsnl.ca/nl-labour-relations-board-notice-covid-19-operations/).
The Board has recently started using remote technology to allow parties and individuals to swear or affirm that the contents of filings are true and accurate. This is being done after the Board has received those filings electronically in an unsworn format. Normally these types of filings (applications, replies, responses etc.) would be received by the Board by way of statutory declaration or affidavit at the time of filing. Further information with respect to this new process will be provided by the Board to parties and individuals, as needed, for specific files.
BOARD-BAR LIAISON COMMITTEE
The Board has received expressions of interest from several members of the Bar concerning its planned Board-Bar Liaison Committee.
The final date for expressions of interest occurred at the start of the pandemic. For that reason, the Board has extended the time period for expressions of interest until Friday, May 8, 2020. Following that date, the Board will select members for this Committee and start its quarterly teleconference meetings (30 minutes in duration). Please submit any expressions of interest using the contact information below. No cover letter or resume is required for any expressions of interest.
