1100.02000 – Investigation of Charge
Factual allegations in a related unfair practice charge, where not contradicted or disputed by the charging party, can be relied on to provide a more complete picture of the relevant factual circumstances of the charge under investigation. Although PERB Regulation 32620, subdivision (d), requires the Board agent to advise the charging party in writing of any charge deficiencies in a warning letter, an amendment to a charge does not necessarily require issuance of a second warning letter; while the Board agent has the duty to assist a charging party to state the required information in proper form and answer procedural questions, they have no duty beyond the initial warning letter to assist the charging party in perfecting their charge; the decision whether to issue more than one warning letter in any particular case lies within the sole discretion of the Office of the General Counsel.
