Title: Administrative Review Board Rules of Practice and Procedure 

The proposed regulations establish procedures for appeals before the Administrative Review Board. The Board has jurisdiction, pursuant to a delegation of authority by the Secretary of Labor, over appeals of decisions and orders issued by Department of Labor Administrative Law Judges and the Administrator of the Wage and Hour Division arising under those laws and implementing regulations identified in Secretary's Order 02-2012, 75 Fed. Reg. 69378 (Nov. 16, 2012). The Board currently has agency appellate review authority over more than 50 worker protections laws. Since the Board's formation in 1996, it has operated without prescribed rules of practice and procedure. The proposed regulations incorporate and codify current Board operating procedures to provide more thorough and accurate rules, and guidance to parties who come before the Board. The regulations establish rules of practice and procedure for the Board that would apply where a governing statute, regulation, or Executive order does not establish contrary rules of practice or procedure and where rules of practice and procedure currently do not exist. They are intended to govern all appeals and proceedings before the Board when not in conflict with a governing statute, regulation or Executive order.
