The Rights of Public Employees in California
There are more than two million public employees in the state of California,. In addition to federal employees working in the state, these public positions include police officers, firefighters, teachers, city and municipality employees, city managers, elected officials, professors, and others. Many public employees never fully understand their employment rights and the necessary protocol that must be followed when it comes to termination, compensation, overtime pay, or discipline. Were you let go without just cause? Were you demoted or forced to take unpaid time off? Did you face unfair discrimination on the job? Our California public employee dispute lawyers representation covers a wide reach of topics, including, but not limited to, the following:
- Civil Service Appeal; and
- Unfair Labor Practice (ULP).
Public Employment Relations Board
California’s Public Employment Relations Board (PERB) is an agency that administers the collective bargaining statutes for California public employees. Public employees protected by the jurisdiction of PERB include employees of public schools, colleges, and universities; State of California employees; those who work for California local agencies, such as cities, counties, and special districts; trial court and trial interpreter employees; those covered by In-Home Supportive Services Employer-Employee Relations Act; and supervisory employees of the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority. PERB manages overtime issues, unfair practice issues, complaints against supervisors, the correcting of statute violations, and much more for state employees in California. However, the legal advice of an attorney is most often necessary. In PERB hearings it is true that individuals may represent themselves, or a non-lawyer may represent them, but most often the individual is represented by an attorney. An experienced employment attorney will greatly enhance your chance of success in this matter.
