The use of the progressive tense that is normally used to describe something that is occurring at a particular moment of time, or for a short period at the most is inapt in the choice E. The view is a generalization and hence it needs a simple present. So also, in saying that the NLB is accusing, there is no hint of whether NLB will continue to accuse, although this is a ground-breaking case. So E wrong.

‘View to be’ is poor idiom. ‘View as’ is correct. Therefore, choices 1 and 2 are out. Between 3 and 4, choice 3 is a run-on without proper conjugation between two independent clauses. 4 survives with proper structure and verb tense.

1) view to be - not the best option...rest doesn't look wrong...
2) In what labour officials and lawyers view to be a ground breaking case involving workers and social media, the National Labour Board accused
verb accused is in past simple, but the first verb LO&L VIEW is in present simple...something doesn't add up...B is out.

3) Labour officials and lawyers view as a ground breaking case that involved workers and social media, the National Labour Board has accused
2 IC connected with a comma...out! moreover, the meaning is not clear...

4) In what labour officials and lawyers view as a ground breaking case involving workers and social media, the National Labour Board has accused
looks good.

5) In what labour officials and lawyers are viewing as a ground breaking case involving workers and social media, the National Labour Board is accusing
present continuous is wordy here i guess...they are not constantly viewing...NLB is not continuously accusing...

D looks good for me.
