PSLRB Filing Complaints

There are a variety of cases that may be filed with the Public School Labor Relations Board.

General Dispute Resolution Forms (Statutory Violation)

Education Article at Title Six Section 2-205(e) permits the Public School Labor Relations Board to decide “any controversy or dispute arising under Title 6, Subtitle 4 or Subtitle 5 of this article.”  This is the type of complaint that most individuals will file.  

Please read the statute to be sure that the subject matter of your complaint is within the jurisdiction of the Board. Also, please note that by State regulations, in order to be timely, Form PSLRB-05 must be filed with the Executive Director of the PSLRB within 60 days after the charging party knew, or reasonably should have known, of the statutory violation alleged.
