New Debt-Collection Regulations
Pursuant to the Debt Collection Improvement Act of 1996, the Federal Labor Relations Authority (``FLRA'') is issuing a regulation governing procedures for collecting debts owed to the federal government by present and former FLRA employees. The regulation sets forth the procedures that the FLRA will follow in collecting debts owed to the United States arising from activities under FLRA jurisdiction. These procedures include collection of debts through administrative offset and salary offset. These regulations supersede the FLRA's debt- collection procedures applied under FLRA Internal Regulation 2790, dated December 29, 1986.
Unfair Labor Practice Proceedings and Miscellaneous and General Requirements
The Federal Labor Relations Authority (FLRA) is engaged in an initiative to make electronic filing or ``eFiling'' available to parties in all cases before the FLRA. Making eFiling available is another way in which the FLRA is using technology to improve the customer-service experience. These eFiling enhancements are expected to increase efficiency by reducing procedural filing errors and processing delays.
