1101.03000 – Computation of Six-Month Period
The six-month limitation period commences to run when the charging party knew or should have known of the conduct giving rise to the alleged unfair practice; p. 4, warning letter. In a unilateral change case, the first implementation of the policy commences the six-month period and subsequent occasions when employees are required to adhere to the policy, so long as it does not change, do not revive the violation; p. 5, warning letter. The statute of limitations has been applied so as to prevent the charging party from engaging in a violation act which would create facts that might establish a new violation within the six-month period; p. 6, warning letter.
