The National Labor Relations Board will likely be ramping up the number of decisions it releases over the next three months ahead of the expiration of Chairman Philip Miscimarra’s term to ensure that pending cases he has voted on don’t experience significant delays, he said in a speech Thursday.

Speaking on a wide range of topics at an event in Manhattan sponsored by Epstein Becker Green, Miscimarra said that the board’s long-held tradition has been to issue rulings for any cases a departing member has been involved in to avoid a potentially years-long delay for litigants in those cases if they have to be re-litigated before a new board panel. Miscimarra, whose term ends on Dec. 16, said earlier this year he would not seek a new term.
