What we do

FLRA Administrative Law Judges conduct hearings and issue recommended decisions on cases involving alleged unfair labor practices.  Administrative Law Judges also render recommended decisions involving applications for attorney fees filed under the Back Pay Act and the Equal Access to Justice Act. 

The Authority appoints Administrative Law Judges under § 7105(d) of the Federal Service Labor-Management Relations Statute.
