1103.09000 – Consolidation, Severance, or Bifurcation of Proceedings
As part of PERB’s authority to investigate and remedy unfair practices, the Board may sever, consolidate, expedite, place in abeyance, or otherwise alter the timeline(s) or sequence in which it investigates some or all of the allegations in a charge to promote uniformity in decisions and administrative efficiency. Here, the Board directed that issuance of a complaint on one allegation be held in abeyance until the remainder of the charge has been fully investigated, so that one complaint, including all matters deemed appropriate for hearing, would be processed on the same timeline.
