The Office of Private Employment Practices and Representation is headed by the Acting Director of Private Employment Practices and Representation.
This section administers the State Employment Relations Act (SERA), including the amendments in the Farm Laborers’ Fair Labor Practices Act.
The section currently has two general areas of responsibility: representation and unfair labor practices. Representation deals with petitions regarding representation of certain private sector employees, including farm laborers. Unfair labor practices are charges filed by individuals, labor organizations or public employers, alleging violations of Section 704 or 704-b of SERA. For forms dealing with both these areas, please visit: www.perb.ny.gov/forms.
