1101.02000 – Amended Charge or Complaint; Withdrawal of Charge; Relation Back Doctrine
A timely violation would not be found where the employer's conduct during the limitations period constituted an unfair practice based on a necessary relation to the original offense. In cases where there is a relation back to previous conduct, some new conduct which is sufficiently independent of the original offense is required that will revive the viability of the unfair practice; p. 5, warning letter.
