1107.01000 – Exceptions; Responses to Exceptions; Standing; Extensions of Time/Late Filing/Waiver
In an appeal from an administrative determination, the moving party must demonstrate how and why the administrative decision being challenged departs from the Board’s precedents or regulations. Where a party fails to file a timely appeal, the appeal is barred unless the Board finds good cause to excuse the failure. PERB Regulation 32136 provides that the Board may excuse a late filing for good cause. Having voluntarily abandoned his appeal, appellant urges that his erroneous impression of PERB’s procedures should operate as good cause to excuse his compliance with PERB’s appeal procedures. We decline to extend the concept of good cause that far.
