LCW Partner Adrianna Guzman And Associate Attorney Gabriella Kamran Win Early Dismissal Of A PERB Charge

CATEGORY: Client Update for Public Agencies

DATE: Sep 07, 2023

An LCW team led by Partner Adrianna Guzman and Associate Gabriella Kamran won the dismissal of a PERB unfair practice charge (UPC).  A police lieutenant, who had been a police officers’ association president, filed the UPC against the City.  The UPC alleged that the police chief retaliated against the lieutenant for various acts the lieutenant had taken in his capacity as POA President.

The LCW team immediately recognized that there were numerous deficiencies with the UPC, including the fact that PERB does not have jurisdiction over individual police officers. The team quickly pointed out all these deficiencies to PERB’s General Counsel.

The General Counsel agreed with the LCW team and dismissed the UPC.  In its dismissal letter, the General Counsel focused solely on the fact that PERB does not have jurisdiction over individual police officers.

This victory was cost efficient because our client did not have to incur the costs and time needed to prepare for a PERB hearing.
