1101.03000 – Computation of Six-Month Period
In San Dieguito Union High School District (1982) PERB Decision No. 194 (San Dieguito), the Board “articulated three distinct exceptions to the six-month rule: ‘the charge may still be considered to be timely filed if the alleged violation is a continuing one, if the violation has been revived by subsequent unlawful conduct within the six-month period, or if the limitation period was tolled.’” (City & County of San Francisco (2017) PERB Decision No. 2536, p. 15, fn. 14, quoting San Dieguito, supra, PERB Decision No. 194, p. 5.) In decisions such as San Dieguito, supra, PERB Decision No. 194, p. 5, and City & County of San Francisco, supra, PERB Decision No. 2536, p. 15, fn. 14, the Board held that the continuing violation doctrine and the new wrongful act doctrine are separate exceptions to the statute of limitations.
