602.01000 – In General
Charge fails to allege sufficient facts to establish that the State violated its duty to bargain by implementing layoff, while it continued to bargain for three more weeks after implementation. Implementation of the nonnegotiable decision to lay off employees prior to the completion of negotiations over the effects of the layoff is permissible where the decision to implement was not arbitrary, the employer gave sufficient notice of the implementation date to provide for meaningful negotiation, and the employer continues to negotiate in good faith.
