1100.08000 – Pleading Requirements
The charging party is not required to provide legal authority or identify the legal theory or theories of the case. PERB will disregard discrepancies or omissions in the specific statutory provisions cited by a charging party and focus instead on the substantive theories of liability implicated by the charging party’s factual allegations. Where charging party alleges facts that support separate interference and discrimination allegations, PERB should consider both theories. pp. 50, fn. 20, 53-54.
