1101.06000 – Statutory and Equitable Tolling
Equitable tolling doctrine does not apply to impasse mediation pursuant to Dills Act section 3518 because filing a request for mediation does not put the other party on notice of the subject of a future unfair practice charge. Charge failed to establish applicability of equitable tolling doctrine because: mediation procedure was not contained in a written agreement negotiated by the parties; the parties did not mediate over the subject of the unfair practice charge; and the respondent would be prejudiced by tolling because it had no notice of the subject of the charge until the charge was filed.
