2263M Central Contra Costa Transit Authority
201.5000: PARTIES; DEFINITIONS; WHO IS AN EMPLOYER?; Joint Powers Agreements
The Central Contra Costa Transit Authority, a joint powers agency, is a public agency within the meaning of MMBA section 3501, subdivision (c); on its face, the MMBA’s definition of “public agency” is a broad one; the “public agency” sub-category under the statute defining “public agency” in the MMBA is not defined and therefore must be viewed as including entities that have achieved the status of a public agency by statute, constitutional provision, case law or administrative precedent, and by examining the public nature of its operations and characteristics, unless to do so would violate the letter, purpose or spirit of the MMBA. more or view all topics or full text.

1928E San Jose/Evergreen Community College District * * * OVERRULED IN PART by County of Ventura (2018) PERB Decision No. 2600-M
201.5000: PARTIES; DEFINITIONS; WHO IS AN EMPLOYER?; Joint Powers Agreements
The Board is not necessarily bound by contract language when determining the existence of a joint employer relationship. The key inquiry in joint employer cases is the level of actual control exerted by the parties over the shared employees. Thus, while contract language provides legitimate indicia of control by one party it is not a dispositive factor in finding the existence of a joint employer relationship. more or view all topics or full text.

Although originally at issue, it is undisputed, that as of the dates of the charge and hearing before the ALJ, the District, not the JPA was the employer of the unit employees and so it is not necessary to address whether the unit employees would become employees of the JPA once the District sponsored them into the JPA. more or view all topics or full text.
