Board Issues First Decision Under Trial Court Interpreter Act

Santa Cruz County Superior Court (PERB Dec. No. 1931I ) (Issued 11/29/07)

The Board has issued its first decision under the Trial Court Interpreter Employment and Labor Relations Act (TCIELRA) (Gov. Code, §71800 et. seq.). The decision itself did not break any new legal ground. However, the Board did confirm that in interpreting the TCIELRA it will generally follow decisions issued under the other PERB-administered statutes (Dills, EERA, HEERA, MMBA) and the NLRA.
