BOLI Final Orders
Since 1972, BOLI has conducted more than 600 contested case hearings in which the Commissioner has issued Final Orders interpreting and applying to fact situations the many statutes and administrative rules enforced by BOLI. Until recently, the Final Orders were published in a total of 30 soft-bound books called BOLI Orders, each containing about 300 pages. Beginning with BOLI Orders, volume 31, BOLI stopped publishing “hard copy” BOLI Orders and converted to electronic publishing. Beginning in 2014, BOLI Final Orders will be electronically published and updated as each new Final Order is issued in a volume identified by year of publication, e.g. "2014 BOLI Orders," with one new volume published each calendar year.
As printed in BOLI Orders, each Final Order begins with a caption that includes the case name, case number, and the date it was issued. Directly under the caption is a synopsis briefly describing the issues in the case, the result, and the statutes and administrative rules involved in the case. For example:
In the Matter of
Case No. 09-06
Final Order of Commissioner Dan Gardner
Issued August 26, 2006
Respondent failed to complete and return BOLI’s 2005 prevailing wage rate survey by the date the Commissioner had specified. After considering any aggravating and mitigating circumstances, the Commissioner imposed a $1,000 civil penalty for Respondent’s violation of ORS 279C.815(3). ORS 279C.815; ORS 279C.865; OAR 839-025-0520; OAR 839-025-0530; OAR 839-025-0540.
Each Final Order included in a volume of BOLI Orders is referred to by a citation that includes the case name, BOLI Orders volume, page number, year of issuance, and appellate history, if any. For example, In the Matter of Elisha, Inc., 25 BOLI 125 (2004), affirmed without opinion, Elisha, Inc. v. Bureau of Labor and Industries, 198 Or App 285, 108 P3d 1219 (2005). Final Orders that have been issued but are not yet published in a volume of BOLI Orders have only a case name.
