Unions that are required to file the Form LM-2, LM-3 and LM-4 Labor Organization Annual Financial Report must submit the form electronically with a digital signature. If Form LM-3 or LM-4 filers face difficulty in complying with this requirement, they can apply for a Continuing Hardship Exemption from the electronic filing requirement. Previously, Form LM-2 filers could also apply for such an exemption, but OLMS eliminated this option for reports due in 2018 and beyond.
Below are the most recent Continuing Hardship Determinations. OLMS will post these decisions prospectively, and will post decisions from previous years as they become electronically available.
