1205.04000 – Attorneys Fees and Costs
PERB will award attorney fees only if the charge is without arguable merit and pursued in bad faith. Attorney fees were awarded because the Union’s witness lied under oath regarding his knowledge of the employer’s policies in order that the charge may survive a timeliness challenge, thereby establishing bad faith in pursuing untimely unfair practice charge alleging unlawful unilateral change.
