1309.03000 – Community of Interest
In defining “community of interest,” PERB has considered such factors as job functions, qualifications, training, skills, supervision, frequency of contact with other employees, integration of work functions of other employees, method of wage payment, hours of work, etc. PERB has eschewed a rigid application of these factors and instead assesses them based on the totality of the circumstances.
