1. The preferred format for submitting PDF documents via e-filing is Adobe’s Portable Document Format (*.pdf) that is text searchable. Each e-filed document must not exceed the size limits specified in PERB regulations. Any document submitted electronically to PERB should be complete. Any attachments to an electronic document must be converted into electronic form and included as part of the document. Attachments should not be filed separately from the electronic document. PERB’s regulations are located here.
2. Unless otherwise specified in PERB’s regulations, all e-filed documents must be served on other interested parties to your case and must include a proof of service showing how any document was served on the other parties. (PERB Regulation 32140.) A user may electronically serve e-filed documents on an interested party only if that party has agreed to accept service electronically in that action.
3. Please redact or remove any non-essential sensitive personally identifiable information before uploading an e-filing. Examples include: full date of birth, full social security numbers, full taxpayer-identification number, full credit card or debit numbers, driver’s license numbers, and the full names of minors. However, a party should substitute non-sensitive and de-identified placeholders (e.g., initials of minors) if needed to make a document(s) more understandable. All e-filed documents that are not in a native format due to redactions or modifications should be noted on the document by the filing party.
4. All users of the e-PERB system are responsible for taking reasonable steps to prevent sending any material to PERB that contains a computer virus.
5. Unless otherwise specified, a document will be considered timely filed if the e-filing receipt reflects that the entire document was received via e-PERB before 11:59 p.m., Pacific Time Zone on the due date. (After 11:59 p.m. on the due date is considered the beginning of the next business day.)
6. User Problems: Generally, PERB will not excuse an untimely filing due to, e.g., (a) problems with a user’s telephone lines, internet service provider, hardware, or software; (b) user problems in understanding or following the e-filing instructions; or (c) rejection of a document because it contains a virus. Further, any user’s noncompliance with PERB’s regulations regarding proper e-filing also does not excuse an untimely filing. A user that is unable to e-file a document because of user problems may submit their documents in person at any of PERB’s regional offices only during PERB’s normal business hours; however, it is ultimately the user’s responsibility to file his/her documents before close of business on the due date.
