ALJ DECISION REGARDING PERMANENT EMPLOYEE LAYOFFS

At the permanent member layoff hearing, laid off members and members designated to be “skipped” by SDUSD all received strong legal representation. At the end of the day all SDEA members were united around the fact that layoffs were arbitrary and destructive. Our attorneys clearly pointed out that the district laid-off FAR MORE members than their own projected worst case deficit deemed necessary.  In fact, the district’s CFO testified that they needed to reduce less than 500 certificated employees to address their projected deficit and yet issued close to 1,000 layoff notices.

The judge has issued his proposed ruling and found that the district did not have a valid case for skipping TK and Dual Language educators while upholding the district’s “skip” criteria for IB teachers. This ruling further illustrates that the layoffs were arbitrary and done without consideration for the impact on our schools and students. Regardless of whether or not the School Board adheres to the judge’s decision, a number of impacted members will have their layoff notices rescinded. We will not know who will be specifically impacted until after the school board vote on May 11th.

Please join your colleagues at the School Board actions on May 9th and 11th to demand that all layoffs be rescinded now.

In solidarity,

Lindsay Burningham

SDEA President

GENERAL INFORMATION

Below, please find information regarding your rights in the event of a layoff (Reduction In Force, “RIF”), next steps for affected SDEA members, important meeting dates, relevant forms, and other resources.

 

SENIORITY LISTS

Here, you can check to see if you are actually on the layoff list, and verify your seniority date, as provided to SDEA by the district.  If it is incorrect, DO NOT CORRECT IT on the district’s website.  Instead, attend one of the meetings listed below.

 

LEGAL FORMS FOR PERMANENT EMPLOYEES ONLY

These forms are for employees who have reached permanent status with SDSUD, and have been notified that they have been laid off.  Permanent employees will be able to challenge mistakes in their layoff at a hearing called for under the CA Education Code.  This process is not for probationary employees.  The SDEA union contract has a different process for challenging mistakes in the layoff procedure for probationary employees, as dictated in Article 19 of the SDEA union contract.

  • CONSENT TO LEGAL REPRESENTATION
  • NOTICE OF PARTICIPATION
    • UPDATE: Permanent members who received a layoff notice no longer have to submit a Notice of Participation. SDEA’s attorney has reached an agreement with SDUSD that the Request for Hearing will suffice.
  • REQUEST FOR HEARING
    • Fill out the Request for Hearing form you received from SDUSD as part of your layoff notice. If you did not receive a form or misplaced the form you received, you can download a copy of a Request for Hearing form on the SDEA website.
    • Deliver the original to the District office located at 4100 Normal St, San Diego, CA 92103. Specifically deliver the Request to the Department of Human Resources, either in person or by certified mail.
    • If you intend to deliver the form personally, make two copies, then give one copy to the District and have the District staff time/date stamp the other copy.
  • TIE BREAK CRITERIA (PERMANENT EMPLOYEES ONLY)
