Decision 1894M – County of Siskiyou
Decision Date: March 27, 2007
Decision Type: PERB Decision
Description: Exceptions challenged the ALJ’s finding that there was no unilateral change in policy or practice when the County of Siskiyou eliminated a position and laid off an employee.
Disposition: The Board affirmed the ALJ’s dismissal of the complaint, because the layoffs were consistent with the county code, which indicated that the order of layoffs shall be implemented by class and department, rather than on a county-wide basis.
