1100.05000 – Dismissal of Charge; Appeal
Board found good cause to excuse late filing of amended charge where charging party made a conscientious attempt to timely file amended charge, the amended charge was postmarked on the date due for filing as a result of honest error based on “misunderstood communications” between the charging party and the Board agent, and there was no evidence of prejudice resulting from the brief delay. A late filing may be excused at the discretion of the Board for good cause only. Once excused, the filing becomes timely (PERB Regulation 32135).
