1101.03000 – Computation of Six-Month Period
Discovery of the legal significance of conduct of which a party has knowledge does not constitute belated discovery for purposes of EERA's statute of limitations. Charging party offered nothing to explain why it took her some eleven years (date when she had been a new teacher) to file the unfair practice charge, other than that she learned of the legal and constitutional issues regarding the alleged unfair labor practice in May of 2000. Such a claim does not save the charge.
