1107.01000 – Exceptions; Responses to Exceptions; Standing; Extensions of Time/Late Filing/Waiver
PERB Regulation 32136 provides that a late filing may be excused in the discretion of the Board for good cause only. A late filing which has been excused becomes timely filing under these regulations. Where appeals assistant denied charging party's third request for extension of time and informed charging party's attorney that the final due date, seven days later, would not be changed, good cause was not found to excuse exceptions filed three days late. The excuses offered were that (1) the attorney was ill and unable to come to the office several days prior to the deadline; and (2) the attorney's office had unspecified computer problems.
