1100.05000 – Dismissal of Charge; Appeal
Board found good cause to excuse respondent’s late-filed response to the appeal from the dismissal of the unfair practice charge under PERB Regulation 32136 where respondent’s response to the appeal was prepared in a timely fashion, respondent made a conscientious effort to timely file, respondent filed timely at a PERB regional office but due to a secretarial error failed to file at PERB headquarters, respondent corrected the filing defect immediately upon discovery, the charging party did not file a response to the administrative appeal, and there was no prejudice to charging party by the late filing.
