Order No. 3595; Emergency Order Regarding All Proceedings Before the Hawaii Labor Relations Board

!!! COVID-19 (also known as the novel coronavirus) !!!


Updated March 18, 2020

Due to concerns regarding COVID-19 (also known as the novel coronavirus), the Board will be drastically reducing operations as recommended by public health guidelines and Governor David Ige’s announcement to slow the spread of COVID-19.  Phone calls and emails sent to the Board may be delayed.  Electronic filing through File & ServeXpress is still available.  Hearings currently scheduled for the next month may be postponed or held telephonically.  The Board will notify you if there are any changes to your case.  The Board’s office will also be closed until further notice.

The Board strongly recommends that all new complaints and other documents for cases before the Board be filed electronically through File & ServeXpress (FSX).

      The procedure for online filing is as follows:

  1. Sign the Board Agreement found here:
  2. Email the Board Agreement to [email protected].
  3. The Board will reply to your email with instructions on how to create a FSX account.  The login page for FSX may be found here:
  4. If filing a new complaint, you may proceed to file immediately after creating your account.
    If you are filing on an existing case, the Board will have to manually link your account to your case.  FSX may take a few hours to show access to your case.
  5. Documents filed will be served on the other parties if that option is checked, but you must still include a Certificate of Service.
  6. If you have any further questions, please contact the board at 586-8616.
