Speaking of the NLRB and decisions by Administrative Law Judges (ALJs), last week the Board unanimously ruled that its process for appointing administrative law judges falls in line with a recent Supreme Court decision on the subject. In Lucia v. SEC , SCOTUS found that the process used by the Security and Exchange Commission for appointing ALJs was unconstitutional because commission staff — instead of its leaders — were making the appointments. In the wake of that decision, WestRock Services, Inc. challenged the NLRB appointment process relative to its ALJs, but the agency rejected it as NLRB members, not staff, appoints the ALJs within the agency. The members of the NLRB in the aggregate constitute an agency head for purposes of appointments and therefore the NLRB process is deemed to be in compliance with the appointments clause of the US Constitution.
