602.06000 – Change in Past Practice
The policies on their face did not exhibit a change in policy concerning employee privacy rights, the requirement for employee cooperation during the investigation of a whistleblower retaliation complaint, or the right to union representation. Trustees of the California State University (2004) PERB Decision No. 1658-H involves nearly identical facts and is dispositive of this case. Executive Order 644, issued in 1997, has been superseded by Executive Order 822 and is no longer in effect. CFA failed to provide examples of unlawful implementation and thus did not state a prima facie case of unilateral change.
