Under The Pobar Act How Long After The Investigation, Does The Employer Have To Wait To Impose Discipline?

If after the investigation, and any pre­disciplinary response or procedure, the employer decides to impose discipline, the employer shall notify the officer in writing of its decision to impose discipline, including the date that the discipline will be imposed, within 30 days of its decision. An exception of this would be if the officer were unavailable for discipline. For officers of the California Highway Patrol, the 30­day time period shall not commence with the service of a preliminary notice of adverse action, should the State elect to provide the officer with such a notice. CHP officers should consult with the union or appropriate counsel.
