Duties Description Under the general direction of the Director, a trial examiner performs appropriate duties consistent with the mission of the Public Employment Practices and Representation Office of the Board. Pursuant to the Rules of the Board, a substantial amount of time is spent by the trial examiner in the preparation for, and conduct of prehearing conferences, assisting the parties to reach an agreement, and in the conduct of hearings if resolution is not possible. The trial examiner engages in legal research and prepares correspondence and other writings in response to inquiries received from PERB's constituents, as well as appearing before clientele groups.
