1101.06000 – Statutory and Equitable Tolling
The statute of limitations begins to run when a charging party discovers the conduct that constitutes the alleged unfair practice, not when a charging party discovers the legal significance of that conduct. Therefore, allegation that charging party received information confirming her suspicions about the employer’s motivation did not render charge timely filed. Similarly, charging party’s lack of knowledge about PERB and the laws it enforces does not toll the six-months limitations period.
