Function: The board investigates complaints regarding misconduct made against arbitrators and commissioners of the Commission. The board investigates allegations of misconduct, but it has no authority to review or change arbitration or Commission decisions.

Members: There are seven members on the board. The chairman of the Commission is the chairman of this board. The senior labor and management commissioner each serve on the board.  Arbitrators elect one Chicago and one Downstate arbitrator. The chairman certifies the election of the arbitrators. Two members who are not commissioners, arbitrators, or Commission employees are selected by the governor. Members receive no compensation for their services, but are reimbursed for their expenses incurred in the performance of their duties.

Terms: Members serve two-year terms beginning March 1 of an odd-numbered year until March 1 of the next odd-numbered year, or until their successors are named. Vacancies shall be filled in the manner in which the positions are normally filled.

Procedures: The chairman shall compile, audit, and retain complaints. The chairman shall advise the commissioner or arbitrator of any complaints filed against him or her, while preserving the identity of the complainant.

The board may determine the complaint is without merit, or it may hold a hearing at which the complainant may testify. The board shall notify the commissioner or arbitrator in writing of any remedial action deemed necessary, and give the commissioner or arbitrator an opportunity to respond. If the problem is sufficiently serious, the board may recommend the governor dismiss an arbitrator or not reappoint a commissioner. Five members of the board must vote to recommend to dismiss an arbitrator or not reappoint a commissioner.
