Decision 2843M – County of Orange
Decision Date: November 10, 2022
Decision Type: PERB Decision (Non-Precedential)
Description: Association of Orange County Deputy Sheriffs (AOCDS) alleged that the County of Orange violated the Meyers-Milias-Brown Act and PERB Regulations by ceasing to collect and remit employee pension contributions, and ceasing to pay employer pension contributions, on compensation for time spent in on call status or working as a canine handler. The administrative law judge (ALJ) dismissed the complaint, finding AOCDS had actual notice of the upcoming change but failed to request effects bargaining within a reasonable time, and therefore waived any right to effects bargaining. The ALJ also denied the County’s request for attorney fees and costs as litigation sanctions against AOCDS. AOCDS excepted to the dismissal while the County cross-excepted to the denial of litigation sanctions.
Disposition: In a non-precedential decision, the Board affirmed the proposed decision.
