501.01000 – In General; Elements of Prima Facie Case
A teacher’s letter complaining about student fights deemed protected activity under EERA, because the letter related to the conditions of his employment and he copied his union representative. The District retaliated against a probationary teacher when it issued him a notice of non-reelection. A teacher’s attendance at a mayor’s meeting which focused on issues affecting conditions of employment at the teacher’s school deemed protected activity under EERA. A teacher reasonably believed that his continued employment would be decided at a meeting, therefore his request for OEA representation was protected activity under EERA. A teacher’s participation on the School Climate and Leadership Committees, which discussed issues of safety, school violence and student discipline were protected activity under EERA.
