  • The Public Employment Relations Board ("PERB") recently issued a decision holding that a work rule permitting employees to listen to personal electronic devices and radios at their work stations constituted a term and condition of employment and so could not be unilaterally changed by their public employer. This memorandum summarizes the decision and provides guidance regarding best employer practices in response to the decision.
