1100.05000 – Dismissal of Charge; Appeal
In computing the time period for filing an appeal from dismissal, a five-day extension of time applies to any filing made in response to documents served by mail. When the last day to perform an act falls on a Saturday, Sunday or holiday, the time period for filing is extended to the next business day. Where last day to file appeal following service of dismissal by mail fell on a State holiday, appeal filed the next business day was timely. Pursuant to PERB Regulation 32635(b), no good cause found to consider new allegations and evidence on appeal, where all of the dates of the events alleged for the first time on appeal predate the dismissal of the charge and the appeal provides no reason why they could not have been alleged in the original charge or in an amended charge.
