1107.6000: CASE PROCESSING PROCEDURES;PROCEDURES BEFORE THE BOARD; De Novo Review; Standard of Review by Board
In resolving an appeal of a dismissal, PERB reviews the Office of General Counsel’s decision de novo. (Lake Elsinore Unified School District (2018) PERB Decision No. 2548, p. 6, fn. 5 (Lake Elsinore); City of San Jose (2013) PERB Decision No. 2341-M, p. 47.) When the sufficiency of a charge turns on interpreting a statute, contract, or employer rule or policy, the Board must accept the plain meaning of the language at issue if it is “clear and unambiguous on its face.” (County of Monterey (2018) PERB Decision No. 2579-M, p. 8.) If the language is ambiguous, “the parties must be afforded the opportunity to offer evidence in support of their respective interpretations at a formal hearing.” (Ibid.) At the charge investigation stage, “the appropriate question is not which of two competing interpretations . . . is the more plausible, but whether the language in dispute is reasonably susceptible to the charging party’s interpretation and whether that interpretation supports a viable, i.e., non-frivolous, theory of liability under the applicable PERB-administered statute.” (Ibid.) more or view all topics or full text.

1107.6000: CASE PROCESSING PROCEDURES;PROCEDURES BEFORE THE BOARD; De Novo Review; Standard of Review by Board
When resolving exceptions to a proposed decision, the Board applies a de novo standard of review. Under this standard, PERB reviews the entire record and is free to make different factual findings and reach different legal conclusions than those in the proposed decision. The Board may affirm, modify, or reverse the proposed decision, order the record re-opened for the taking of further evidence, or “take such other actions as it considers proper.” (PERB Reg. 32320, subd. (a)(2); Regents of the University of California (2018) PERB Decision No. 2601-H, p. 12.) more or view all topics or full text.

An arbitrator’s interpretation of a contract term is not binding on PERB but may be probative of the term’s meaning. (p. 40.) The Board did not find an arbitration decision probative of the question before it—whether the regional committee was contractually obligated to bargain over the impacts of changes to employee pension contributions—because the decision focused solely on the individual trial court’s obligations under the collective bargaining agreement. more or view all topics or full text.

On appeal of dismissal of an unfair practice charge, the Board’s inquiry is limited to the legal sufficiency of the charging party’s allegations, i.e. whether the factual allegations, if accepted as true, would state a prima facie violation. It does not determine whether a preponderance of the evidence will ultimately establish the factual allegations as true. (p. 4.) more or view all topics or full text.

2567E Hartnell Community College District
1107.6000: CASE PROCESSING PROCEDURES;PROCEDURES BEFORE THE BOARD; De Novo Review; Standard of Review by Board
The Charging Party cannot rely on factual allegations made at the pre-hearing stage of PERB proceedings, which PERB accepts as true, with factual findings resulting from a formal hearing and developed record, which are the Charging Party’s burden to prove with competent and admissible evidence. (PERB Regs. 32178.) On review of a dismissal without hearing, the Board treats the charging party’s factual allegations as true and considers them in the light most favorable to the charging party’s case. However, after a complaint issues, the charging party bears the burden of prove the complaint’s allegations by a preponderance of the evidence in order to prevail. (PERB Reg. 32178.) A prior Board decision reversing the dismissal of an unfair practice charge is neither evidence in support of a complaint’s allegations, nor the law of the case as to the merits of the dispute.

The Board found it unnecessary to consider most of Charging Party’s exceptions, as they concerned issues that were not material to the outcome of his case. Although the Board’s review of exceptions to a proposed decision is de novo, it need not address arguments that have already been adequately addressed in the same case or that would not affect the result.

Despite its highly repetitive and often misplaced or entirely irrelevant arguments, charging party’s appeal from dismissal/refusal to issue a complaint identified the asserted error by the Office of the General Counsel in dismissing her charge, and thus substantially complied with PERB Regulation 32635. While clarity and conciseness are always appreciated, the regulation governing appeals does not expressly require a “clear and concise statement” of the appeal.

Because the Board adopted the proposed decision, which fully considered and explained why certain information requested by the union was necessary and relevant, these same issues, presented to the Board as exceptions to the proposed decision, warranted no further discussion from the Board.

As part of its de novo review, the Board itself may address matters not excepted to correct an error or prevent a serious mistake of law from becoming part of Board precedent. Although neither party had excepted, the proposed decision contained a typographical error whose effect was to suggest that an employer may restrict employees from solicitation during nonworking time, which is contrary to Board precedent. The Board corrected the editing oversight to avoid confusion regarding Board precedent. (p. 3, fn. 5.) more or view all topics or full text.

Notwithstanding the deference usually shown by the Board toward an ALJ’s factual findings based on credibility determinations, because in this case, there was no formal hearing on the record and no live testimony to serve as the basis for observational or non-observational credibility factors, the Board owed no deference to the ALJ’s findings or credibility determinations. The Board applies a de novo standard of review and is required to consider the entire record. As the ultimate finder of fact, it is free to draw its own findings and conclusions from the record, even where they are contrary to those of an ALJ.

While the Board applies a de novo standard of review and is free to draw its own conclusions from the record, because an ALJ is in a much better position than the Board to accurately make credibility determinations based on live testimony, “the Board has determined that it will normally afford deference to administrative law judges’ findings of fact involving credibility determinations unless they are unsupported by the record as a whole.” [citations omitted.] Because the record as a whole in this case supported the ALJ’s factual findings and credibility determinations, which were based on a variety of observational and non-observational factors, and because the excepting party provided no grounds to undermine these findings and determinations, the Board declined to disturb the proposed decision finding that the charging party failed to prove the complaint’s allegations of bad-faith bargaining.

1107.6000: CASE PROCESSING PROCEDURES;PROCEDURES BEFORE THE BOARD; De Novo Review; Standard of Review by Board
Following Board review of a dismissal, it was unnecessary to remand to the Office of the General Counsel for further investigation, where the charge and supporting documents already contained sufficient information to state a prima facie case of employer interference with protected employee rights. Newly-submitted evidence that became available only after dismissal of the charge may be considered on appeal upon a showing a good cause. However, the evidence, which concerned charging party’s satisfactory performance of job duties for an employer other than the respondent was only marginally relevant at this stage of the proceedings and did not affect any of the issues on appeal. more or view all topics or full text.

Because this case is an appeal from a dismissal and refusal to issue a complaint by the Office of the General Counsel, our inquiry at this stage is focused on the sufficiency of the charging party’s allegations. In addition, we may also consider information provided by the respondent, but only when such information is submitted under oath, complements without contradicting the facts alleged in the charge, and is not disputed by the charging party. more or view all topics or full text.

Board applies de novo standard when reviewing Board agent’s dismissal of an unfair practice charge.
