PUBLIC EMPLOYMENT RELATIONS BOARD[621]

Adopted and Filed

Pursuant to the authority of Iowa Code section 20.6(5), the Public Employment Relations Board hereby amends Chapter 8, "Internal Conduct of Employee Organizations," Chapter 9, "Administrative Remedies," and Chapter 11, "State Employee Appeals of Grievance Decisions and Disciplinary Actions," Iowa Administrative Code.

The amendments proposed herein are a result of the five-year rolling review of administrative rules as outlined in Iowa Code section 17A.7(2). The agency rules administrator, with the assistance of the agency's other administrative law judges, reviewed the agency's chapters to identify outdated or redundant references, inconsistencies with statutes, and methods of enhancing efficiencies. The proposed amendments were then published on the agency's Web site with an opportunity for all constituents to provide feedback. The proposed amendments were also shared with others who may be impacted, such as the Department of Administrative Services (DAS).

Items 1 through 7 address Chapter 8, and although presented as new rules, the revisions to Chapter 8 include the division of existing rules into separate rules, the renumbering of rules, and other nonsubstantive changes to succinctly specify the documents involved, the electronic filing process, and the bonding required of employee organizations. Additionally, new rule 621—8.6(20) in Item 6 reflects provisions of Iowa Code section 20.25 that require the Board's permission to establish a trusteeship. New rule 621—8.7(20) in Item 7 implements provisions of Iowa Code section 20.25(6) and reflects current revocation and noncertification practices for employee organizations that fail to comply with the statute.

Items 8 through 15 address Chapter 9 and include the addition of references to Iowa Code chapter 17A as a chapter being implemented. The items include the renumbering of present rules and other nonsubstantive amendments which incorporate electronic filing and, consistent with Iowa Code chapter 17A, more clearly specify when an agency decision becomes a final decision, the uniform timeline for an appeal or petition for the Board's review, the Board's ability to review and timeline for review of a proposed decision on its own motion, and the Board's procedure on appeal or review. Other amendments reflect the status of amicus curiae, resolve a conflict between the statute and the existing rule by eliminating a party's ability to present additional evidence before the Board on appeal or review, and include the Board's standard of review for modifying or reversing findings of fact or conclusions of law. The new rules presented in Items 13 and 14 reflect provisions of Iowa Code chapter 17A that allow a party to file an application for rehearing and an application for stay of agency action.

Items 16 through 26 address Chapter 11 and recognize the renumbering of Iowa Code chapter 19A as chapter 8A. The items include the renumbering of present rules and other nonsubstantive amendments which incorporate electronic filing, more clearly specify notice of appeal rights to employees, delete the requirement that parties provide unnecessary information or documents required for appeals, and clarify when a decision becomes final agency action. Other amendments in Item 17 resolve a conflict between the statute and the existing rule that allows a failure of the DAS Director to comply with Iowa Code section 8A.415 to work to the employee's disadvantage. The amendments resolve the conflict by providing the employee the option of filing a PERB appeal if the DAS Director has not responded in a timely fashion or of waiting for the Director's untimely response and filing an appeal within the following 30 days. Item 21 rescinds the present rule requiring agencies to make their employees available as witnesses on official duty status, which is not required by statute, and the renumbered rule adopted in its place clarifies the appealing employee's right to a closed hearing and deletes the employee's unilateral option of having a determination made on the pleadings and documents without a hearing. Item 25 rescinds an outdated rule.

Notice of Intended Action was published in the Iowa Administrative Bulletin as ARC 2817C on November 23, 2016. Written and oral comments and requests for a public hearing were accepted through December 13, 2016. No request for a public hearing was received, and no written or oral questions, comments or suggestions were submitted. These amendments are identical to those published under Notice of Intended Action.

These rules do not provide for a waiver of their terms, but are instead subject of the Board's general waiver provisions found at rule 621—1.9(17A,20).

After review and analysis of this proposed rule making, no adverse impact on jobs has been found.

These amendments are intended to implement Iowa Code chapters 8A, 17A and 20.

These amendments will become effective February 22, 2017.
