Effective July 1, 2013, a majority of the Board members issuing a decision or
order pursuant to an appeal filed under Section 32635 [Review of Dismissals]
shall determine whether the decision or order, or any part thereof, shall be
designated as precedential.” Decisions designated as precedential by the Board
itself pursuant to this regulation will be posted to the Decision Bank on PERB’s
website in the same manner as decisions issued prior to July 1, 2013. Decisions
that are not designated as precedential have binding effect on the parties to
the case but have no value as binding authority in future cases.
Non-precedential decisions will not be posted to the Decision Bank but can be
made available to members of the public upon a written request.
