1110.01000 – In General; Standards
On multiple occasions, the Board has found no good cause where the party’s attorney failed to follow or misconstrued PERB’s filing regulations. (See Lake Elsinore Unified School District (2017) PERB Order No. Ad-446, pp. 10-11; State of California (Department of Corrections) (2003) PERB Order No. Ad-328-S, pp. 3-5; State of California (Water Resources Control Board) (1999) PERB Order No. Ad-294-S, pp. 5-6; Calipatria Unified School District (1990) PERB Order No. Ad-217, pp. 12-13.) Here, the Board found that the existence of a regulation which would have allowed the District to timely file, even given the circumstances outlined in the appeal, supports that the District did not have good cause for an untimely filing.
