1100.12000 – Extensions of Time
It cannot be assumed from a respondent’s failure to put its request for extension in writing in violation of PERB’s regulations that Board agent did not find good cause to grant the extension; the respondent’s non-compliance with the requirements for requesting extensions, when there is no showing of prejudice, does not require Board agent to exclude from consideration the respondent’s position statement filed within the extended time period; PERB’s regulations regarding extensions of time enable Board agents to exercise control over the timeline for processing a charge and while violations of PERB’s regulations will not be condoned, neither will they be used to undermine the authority of Board agents in the performance of their duties.
