The Board applies a disjunctive interpretation of HEERA section 3580.3 and will find supervisory status where the employee meets one of specified criteria for exclusion and does no rank and file work. The party seeking exclusion must demonstrate that the specific task is regularly performed and not a sporadic or atypical exercise of duties. Further, it must also be demonstrated that the party exercises independent judgment rather than routine or clerical decision-making. more or view all topics or full text.

1309.13000: REPRESENTATION ISSUES; UNIT DETERMINATION/CRITERIA (SEE ALSO WHO IS AN EMPLOYEE?, SECTION 200); Supervisors
EERA entitles public school employees the right to form bargaining units and be represented in their employment conditions by an employee organization of their choosing. This right is extended to supervisory personnel so long as no bargaining unit of supervisors is represented by the same employee organization as the employees that those supervisors supervise. Employees properly designated as managers, on the other hand, are excluded from the definition of a public school employee under EERA, and consequently denied collective bargaining rights. The Board has long held that a “management employee” under EERA must have significant responsibilities both for the formulation of district policies and the administration of district programs. Applying these principles, Board found four of the disputed classifications to be managerial and, therefore, properly excluded from the petitioned-for bargaining unit. more or view all topics or full text.

Board affirmed that a “management employee” under EERA must have significant responsibilities both for the formulation of district policies and the administration of district programs. Among the factors distinguishing a management employee from a non-management employee is the ability to waive or deviate from established policy, and the presence or absence of a relatively intimate relationship with a school district’s superintendent or governing board. Applying these principles, Board found 17 of 25 disputed classifications to be managerial, while the other 8 were found to be within the supervisor’s unit. more or view all topics or full text.

The Board has held that since section 3540.1(m) is written in the disjunctive, an employee need only perform or effectively recommend one of the enumerated functions or duties to be found to be a supervisor. (Sweetwater Union High School District (1976) EERB Decision No. 4 (Sweetwater). The performance of supervisory duties must include the use of independent judgement. Routine or clerical decision making which does not require the use of independent judgment precludes a finding of supervisory status. (Lincoln Unified School District (1997) PERB Decision No. 1194 (Lincoln) citing Unit Determination of the State of California (1980) PERB Decision No. 110c-S. Supervisory status will be afforded an employee if she or he has the authority to effectively recommend promotion, discharge or hiring. (Campbell.) However, conducting evaluations or effectively recommending the outcome of the evaluation process is only indicative of supervisory status when it can be shown to have an effect on promotions and terminations and when it is not subject to substantial review; In this case, there is no eveidence regarding the extent the recommendations are relied upon or modified. Such is not considered as "effective recommendation". (Lincoln; Hemet Unified School District (1990) PERB Decision No. 820; Sanger Unified School District (1989) PERB Decision No. 752 (Sanger); State of California, supra, PERB Decision No. 110c-S.) Supervisory authority found because the Cook Managers and Cafeteria Leadworkers decide whether to rotate staff assignments and whether to use a substitute to cover an absence; additionally, they are the only authority on-site and neither substantial review nor prior approval is required for them to carry out day-to-day operations of their kitchens. Cook Managers and Cafeteria Leadworkers also demonstrate supervisory authority by effectively recommending the authorization of overtime, coupled with the fact that their requests are never denied. more or view all topics or full text.

When analyzing a position with disputed supervisory status, the Board uses an individual analysis of each contested position or considers the typical duties of the position when the evidence indicates substantial uniformity in the duties of the disputed classification. The underlying principle of both approaches is that the Board must look at the actual nature of the work performed by the incumbents, rather than the work specified in the job description; p. 5. PERB evaluates EERA section 3540.1(m)'s indicia of supervisory status in the disjunctive; supervisory statuts may be found when an employee performs even one of the enumerated functions; p. 6; p. 35, proposed dec. The performance of supervisory duties must involve the use of independent judgment. Routine or clerical decision making without independent judgment precludes a supervisory status finding; p. 36, independent judgment. Routine or clerical decision making without independent judgment precludes a supervisory status finding; p. 36, is indicated when the performance of duties includes the opportunity to make a clear choice between two or more significant alternative courses of action and the power to make that choice without broad review or approval; p. 36, proposed dec. The Board has not applied a standard of percentages to the performance of supervisory duties; p. 36, proposed dec. The final decision regardinghiring, discipline and salaries are traditionally reserved to persons far removed from the employee's immediate supervisor. Therefore, the ability to indirectly, but effectively, bring about changes in employment statuts is accorded great weight and an employee will be found a supervisor if they have the authority to effectively recommend the promotion, discharge, or hiring of other employees; p. 36, proposed dec. Mere participation on any interview panel is not sufficient to hiring of other employees; p. 36, proposed dec.

Supervising Cook I and Food Service Supervisor I classifications were determined to be supervisory classes and therefore excluded from bargaining Unit 15. Legislature intended PERB consider job descriptions, duty statements, or civil service classification structure established by SPB in determining whether an employee or classification is supervisory under the Act; p. 12. In determining whether particular classification is "supervisory," Board may give some weight to scope of responsibilities, authority, and duties described in the class specification, job description, or duty statement created by SPB. They do not create a rebuttable presumption, nor are they typically sufficient by themselves to support an exclusionary claim; p. 13 and 15. The mere inclusion of the word(s) "supervisor" or "supervisory" in the class title, specification, job description, or duty statement is not The mere inclusion of the word(s) "supervisor" or "supervisory" in the class title, specification, job description, or duty statement is not Once there has been a determination (under the Dills Act) that a classification is supervisory, subsequent exclusionary challenges should be made on a position-by-position approach based on the actual duties performed by the incumbent(s) in the disputed positions. The Board split on whether in such instances, PERB should allow SPB, or its designee, the opportunity to review the classification to assure that the positions in question are properly allocated and classified under the personnel classification plan; pp. 13-14. Burden of proof in exclusionary claim is on party asserting the claim. more or view all topics or full text.

Supervision of seasonal employees that includes discretion to recruit, interview, hire, determine need, evaluate, discipline and/or discharge, assign and schedule without any review or consultation with higher authority are indices of supervisory authority "in the interest of the employer;" pp. 21-22, proposed dec.

The performance of any one supervisory function renders an employee supervisory; p. 15. The performance of supervisory duties must involve the use of independent judgment.

Board applies disjunctive interpretation of 3580.3 and will find supervisory status where shown employee meets one of specified criteria for exclusion and does no rank and file work. Party seeking exclusion must demonstrate specific task is regularly performed and not a sporadic or a typical exercise of duties. Further, must also be shown that party exercises independent judgment rather than routine or clerical decision-making. Supervisory authority will not be found where the actual authority is limited to a choice between two or more tightly directed and narrowly defined procedures. Independent judgment is indicated where the performance of duties includes the opportunity to make a clear choice between two or more significant alternative courses of action and the power to make that choice is without broad review and approval. significant alternative courses of action and the power to make that choice is without broad review and approval. judgment is precluded. Alleged supervisorial task must be exercised in the interest of the employer. Evidence limited to a demonstration of control over work processes does not support an exclusion. Where the guidance of other employees is derived from greater experience, technical expertise and knowledge of the employer's mission and tasks, such employees may appropriately be included in the unit. Section 3580.3 specifically directs that employees whose duties are substantially similar to those of their sbubordinates shall not be considered supervisory employees. As used in the statute, "substantially similar," requires exclusion when the employees' duties reach that point where the supervisory obligation to the employer outweights the entitlement to the rights when the employees' duties reach that point where the supervisory obligation to the employer outweights the entitlement to the rights enumerated supervisory functions to a degree sufficient to exclude them. No independent hiring authority. Assignment of tasks resemble routine or clerical decision making rather than clear choices between two or more significant alternatives. Sergeants, in fact, despite job description, do not regularly adjust grievances. Do not have disciplinary authority or control sufficiently autonomous to be charged with independent authority. Duties are substantially similar to their subordinates. more or view all topics or full text.

Determination of lack of supervisory status based upon totality of evidence presented. Sergeants did not possess or exercise independent judgment when administering disciplinary action, but rather ordered in accordance with the superior's opinion. Including 59 contested positions would have resulted in 100 persons supervising 197 non-supervisors, sufficient distinction from Grayhound case (NLRB) where 121 dispatchers supervised 3,000 drivers, to hold different conclusion. Mere potential to resolve informal grievances, is insufficient to support finding of supervisory status, and evidence showed day-to-day disputes were reconciled by sergeants, not as agents for the employer, but as co-workers concerned with reducing disruption of the work environment.
