1103.09000 – Consolidation, Severance, or Bifurcation of Proceedings
PERB’s regulations neither expressly authorize nor prohibit processing unfair practice charges as class or representative actions and PERB may consolidate separately-filed charges including the same or overlapping allegations to promote administrative efficiency. Under relation back doctrine, PERB may include additional charging parties after the limitations period has run if their allegations are identical to those included in a previously-filed charge.
