Filing of an amicus brief with PERB
Selected Rulings posted by PERB  – Matter of the County of Suffolk, Decision U-28610

The Board granted motions by the Police Conference of New York and the Suffolk County Police Conference to file amicus briefs* with respect to exceptions from an ALJ decision dismissing a charge alleging that the County of Suffolk violated §209-a.1(d) of the Public Employees’ Fair Employment Act when it unilaterally transferred supervisory police duties previously performed on the Long Island Expressway and Sunrise Highway by the members of the Supervisor Officers’ Association of the Police Department of the County of Suffolk. 

This decision reflects PERB’s view that an amicus brief may be valuable during consideration of pending exceptions.
