1107.06000 – De Novo Review; Standard of Review by Board
Board applies de novo standard when reviewing Board agent’s dismissal of an unfair practice charge. In using the phrase “free of prejudicial error” when adopting a Board agent’s warning and dismissal letters as the decision of the Board itself, PERB did not intend to establish an abuse of discretion standard of review.
