PERB’s general regulation changes took effect July 1, 2013. The biggest change is regulation 32091 which provides for filing documents via email. PERB has created separate email addresses for each regional office and the appeals unit of the Board. The email addresses are listed below and are published on PERB’s website on the “Contact” page.

Email filing replaces PERB’s “on-line” filing system which was cumbersome to use. I was one of the first people to take advantage of the email filing option since I had a filing due on July 1st. Because there is a 3MB limit on the size of attachments I had to send my document in two separate emails. There was no “automatic reply” letting me know that PERB got my email; I had to call to confirm receipt. But the process went smoothly and was much easier than fax filing or filing the document in-person.
