Administrative History

The series consists of legal files created by the Public Employment Relations Board (PERB) as it reviews and approves local laws and procedures established by "mini-PERBs" set up by local governments. Local governments may pass laws establishing such organizations, which operate in New York City, Suffolk, and Nassau counties, and a few other local governments. Although about 50 mini-PERBs have been established, most have been abolished. When a party to a local government proceeding petitions PERB to review the implementation of the local provisions and procedures (under Section 212 of the Civil Service Law), counsel's office conducts an investigation and makes a recommendation to the board. The New York City mini-PERB is exempt from this process.
