Account Creation Instructions
When creating a new ePERB registration, please note that you may create a registration for a single user or multi-user account.
**If you have previously established an ePERB account and have a password, please login using your email address and password by clicking here.
Creating a Single-User Account
Creating a single user account can be accomplished by registering your email address, name and telephone number. ePERB will ask you to create a password. Please be certain to maintain your password for future reference; however, ePERB will allow you to request a new password by clicking here.
Creating a Multi-User Account
Entities having multiple employees who will be accessing files within ePERB, may wish to consider establishing a multi-user account. In a multi-user account, a single administrator for the multi-user entity will be able to establish and maintain passwords and login information for all entity participants requiring access to ePERB. One advantage to a multi-user account is that registered participants within the organization will have access to all of the files where the organization is a participant. Thus, if the entity is a five member law firm, each lawyer may be able to view all of the files handled by the law firm, not just those files where an individual attorney is a registered participant in the case.
For further information about multi-user accounts, please see our FAQs.
Once a registered user and case participant, you may accomplish the following tasks online:
1. View e-filing history.
2. E-file documents to your case.
3. E-file a new case.
4. Manage contact information.
1. The Public Employment Relations Board (PERB) requires that you mail hard copies of all e-filed documents to the appropriate PERB Regional Office. (PERB Regulations 32075, 32122, 32123, 32124 and 32612.) PERB’s regulations are located here. The preferred format for submitting 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.
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.
7. Disclaimer: All users must adhere to all protocols and guidelines set forth in these terms and specified in PERB’s regulations, including but not limited to rules for proper filing and serving of e-filed documents.

9. After completing the e-filing process, the user will receive a confirmation e-mail message and reference number. Please manage your junk or SPAM folder to locate receipt of such confirmation e-mail messages.
