Commission Denies Restraint of Arbitration Over Denial of Tuition Reimbursement

Washington Township Board of Education and Washington Township Education Association

In P.E.R.C. No. 2016-25, the Commission denied a request for a restraint of binding arbitration of a grievance challenging the Board’s denial of tuition reimbursement requests after using tuition reimbursement funds for another program.  The Commission found the N.J.S.A. 18A:6-8.5(b), which provides an employee with the right to appeal to the Board, does not preclude an employee from challenging the decision through the grievance arbitration procedure.
