1107.18000: CASE PROCESSING PROCEDURES;PROCEDURES BEFORE THE BOARD; Review of Findings Not Excepted To
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.

The Board disagrees that its sua sponte review of the ALJ’s reliance upon California State Employees Association (Hackett, et al.) (1993) PERB Decision No. 979-S in order to avoid a “serious mistake of law” was a prejudicial error of fact. Board precedent allows such sua sponte review and has held that reversal of precedent does not constitute grounds for reconsideration.
