The Public Employment Relations Board ("PERB") in Crowell v. Berkeley Unified School District found the anti-retaliation provisions contained in the Educational Employment Relations Act ("EERA"), Cal. Gov. Code § 3540, et seq., to be broader than those of other public employment statutes because EERA specifically identifies the right to be represented by employee organizations for professional relationships, not simply employment relationships.
