1503.03000 – Regulations Considered (By Number) (Continued)
Under PERB Regulation 32092, subdivision (a), a digital pen is not required to execute a valid electronic signature. Under subdivision (b), PERB would have deemed the District’s response to have been signed when it was electronically filed, even without the written signature of a digital pen. Therefore, the District’s counsel could have timely submitted the District’s response through e-PERB without spending time searching for a battery for his digital pen. 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.
