300.16000 – Appeals to Other Agencies/Filing of Court Actions
PERB has consistently held that filing complaints with outside agencies and regarding issues such as race or gender based discrimination does not qualify as protected activity. This is because outside agencies often have rules and regulations in place to prevent unlawful retaliation for filing complaint and because PERB does lacks the authority to address race or gender based discrimination claims.
