1101.03000 – Computation of Six-Month Period
PERB is prohibited from issuing a complaint with respect to any charge based upon an alleged unfair practice occurring more than six months prior to the filing of the charge. In retaliation cases, the statute of limitations begins to run when the charging party discovers the conduct that constitutes the unfair practice, not when the charging party discovers the legal significance of that conduct.
