602.03000 – Change In Policy
The on-the-job-training form suggests there is a policy or practice that training is done during work hours. Generally, the number of employees affected by a change does not alone determine whether the change has a generalized effect or continuing impact. PERB also considers whether the employer believes or acts as if it has a right to take the action without bargaining. The charge does not allege facts that demonstrates the employer believed or acted as if it had a right to direct employees to complete training outside duty hours. There is no indication of continued application of the at-home training requirement. As filed, the charge demonstrates only an isolated incident and not a change in policy.
