In an Updated Advisory on Public Disclosure Reporting in Areas Affected by the Coronavirus (COVID-19), the OLMS released the following update on March 25, 2020:

Due to the ongoing disruptions caused by the Coronavirus (COVID-19), the Department of Labor’s Office of Labor-Management Standards (OLMS) updated its March 17, 2020 advisory concerning Title II of the Labor-Management Reporting and Disclosure Act of 1959 (LMRDA).

Unions, employers, and labor relations consultants wishing to take advantage of this enforcement policy do not need to contact OLMS before the report is due, providing the requested information. Rather, OLMS will not pursue a civil enforcement action with regard to a delinquent or deficient report when these reporting violations are attributable to COVID-19 and the reporting deadline was prior to June 30, 2020. Any such reports must be filed by June 30, 2020, absent further notice from OLMS.

Please contact your Legacy Professionals LLP representative with any questions.
