California Regulations

Higher Education Employer-Employee Relations Act (HEERA)

HEERA, passed by the California Legislature in 1978 and enacted in 1979, covers employer-employee labor relations for the California State University (CSU) and the University of California (UC) systems. This state law dictates labor relations between the University of California and California State University systems, their employees and the labor organizations that represent their employees.

California Education Code, Chapter 5 (Provisions 89500 - 89754)

The California Governor and Legislature are responsible for creating, editing and codifying the laws directly related to the California K-12 public schools, CSUs and UCs. The CSU Board of Trustees are responsible for complying with the provisions contained in the Education Code. Sections within the Education Code that are specific to CSUs are found in Division 8 - California State University. Issues related to personnel matters are contained in Chapter 5 (Provisions 89500-89754).

California Code of Regulations

The California Code of Regulations (CCR) contains a set of 28 titles that have been formally adopted by state agencies, reviewed and approved by the Office of Administrative Law, and filed with the Secretary of State. Chapter 1 of Division 5 is specific to CSUs. The Board of Trustees has the authority to adopt, amend and appeal these administrative laws.
