1503.01000 – In General
After the hearing, the Board notified the parties that the consolidated cases had been placed on the Board’s docket for decision. PERB Regulation 32320, subdivision (a)(1) allows the Board itself to “[i]ssue a decision based upon the record of hearing.” PERB Regulation 32215 allows the Board itself to direct a Board agent to “submit the record of the case to the Board itself for decision.” The University asked the Board to remand the case to the ALJ for a proposed decision, arguing that the ALJ is better suited than the Board to make credibility determinations because he observed the witnesses testify at the hearing. After considering responses from Charging Parties, the Board denied the request.
