Decision 2513S – State of California (Department of Veterans Affairs)
Decision Date: February 2, 2017
Decision Type: PERB Decision (Non-Precedential)
Description: Charging party, a State employee, appealed the dismissal of his unfair practice charge which alleged that the State had terminated his employment in retaliation for protected activity.
Disposition: The Board refused to find good cause to consider newly-presented information on appeal because the information was readily available to the charging party before he filed his amended charge and before the charge was dismissed. The Board agreed with the Office of the General Counsel that the charging party had failed to allege sufficient facts to state a prima facie case, including information demonstrating the timeliness of the material allegations. Accordingly, it denied the appeal and adopted the dismissal of the charge.
