1107.12000: CASE PROCESSING PROCEDURES;PROCEDURES BEFORE THE BOARD; Interlocutory Appeal
Certifying an interlocutory appeal would signify to the Board that a critical issue in this case needed immediate resolution. The Board could have expeditiously resolved the issue and returned the case to the ALJ to either order limited briefing on the merits if his Order was affirmed, or setting a hearing if his Order was reversed.

1107.12000: CASE PROCESSING PROCEDURES;PROCEDURES BEFORE THE BOARD; Interlocutory Appeal
When determining whether to certify an interlocutory appeal to the Board, Board agents should be guided by PERB’s longstanding policy against “depriv[ing parties] of the opportunity to have their issues heard on the merits due to legal technicalities.” (p. 19) more or view all topics or full text.

1107.12000: CASE PROCESSING PROCEDURES;PROCEDURES BEFORE THE BOARD; Interlocutory Appeal
Whether good cause existed to accept a late-filed answer was an appropriate issue for an interlocutory appeal pursuant to PERB Regulation 32200. In order for an ALJ to join in the request and certify the interlocutory appeal to the Board itself, three elements must be found: (a) the issue involved is one of law; (b) the issue involved is controlling in the case; and (c) an immediate appeal will materially advance the resolution of the case. (Ibid.) Because the existence of good cause requires the application of a legal standard, it is an appropriate issue to certify to the Board. Because the ALJ construed the late-filed answer as resulting in the respondent admitting all material factual allegations in the complaint and charge, waiving all affirmative defenses, and waiving its right to a hearing, finding no good cause was sufficiently controlling to warrant an interlocutory appeal. Certifying an interlocutory appeal would have avoided duplicative briefing, so the appeal would have materially advanced the resolution of the case. (p. 18) more or view all topics or full text.

1107.12000: CASE PROCESSING PROCEDURES;PROCEDURES BEFORE THE BOARD; Interlocutory Appeal
PERB Regulation 32200 allows the appeal of an interlocutory order to the Board only when the Board agent joins in the request. (p. 3, fn. 4.) Because pre-arbitration deferral has a substantial impact on the charging party’s subsequent ability to pursue the allegations in the charge, and to bring uniformity to PERB’s practice under the various statutes it administers, a Board agent’s decision to defer a charge to arbitration and place it in abeyance pending completion of arbitration proceedings is not an interlocutory order, and therefore PERB Regulation 32200 does not apply in such circumstances. Rather, such a decision is an administrative decision that may be appealed directly to the Board under PERB Regulation 32360. (pp. 8-11.)PERB Regulation 32380, by its plain language, contemplates that an administrative decision may constitute an interlocutory order. Thus, administrative decisions and interlocutory orders are not mutually exclusive. (pp. 6-7.)Although the Board has not yet fully delineated the scope of what constitutes an interlocutory order, interlocutory orders are not limited to rulings made in the course of a hearing.

(A letter placing a unit modification petition in abeyance pending the outcome of a decertification petition is an interlocutory order, and therefore must be appealed pursuant to PERB Regulation 32380, not PERB Regulation 32350.)

Appeal of regional director's order of election for rescission of organizational security arrangement denied where petition for election was timely and accompanied by sufficient signatures; p. 1. PERB Regulation 34020(b)(5) requires that petition for rescission of organizational security clause include language of the clause sought to be rescinded; to avoid confusion on what clause is being voted on, text of the submitted clause appears on each ballot; p. 5. Pending superior court actions which could result in a finding that organizational security clause, which is the subject of a petition for a rescission election, is unenforceable, do not require PERB to cancel or delay rescission election, as to do so would be to render an advisory opinion that such a clause does not constitute an organizational security arrangement "in effect" under EERA 3546(b), as no judgment has yet been rendered by the court; p. 6. organizational security arrangement "in effect" under EERA 3546(b), as no judgment has yet been rendered by the court; p. 6. more or view all topics or full text.
