1000.02117 – Released Time
Released time, though not specifically enumerated in the EERA, is related to hours and wages. Released time furthers the legislative goal that negotiations proceed expeditiously. The determination of the amount of released time is not a managerial prerogative. Good faith negotiations is the proper method of resolving conflict on this issue. In section 3543.1(c) the Legislature established a minimum released-time standard against which the parties good faith in negotiations on the subject could be measured.
