Dynamic Status Quo Doctrine Overturned by the Public Employment Relations Commission

A recent decision issued by the Public Employment Relations Commission is likely to impact the “dynamic status quo doctrine” which has historically required payment of increments at the expiration of a collective negotiations agreement.

Municipalities and public employers should be aware of In the Matter of County of Atlantic and PBA Local 243, et. al., PERC No. 2014-40, where the Commission overturned this long-standing policy which previously required public employers to pay employee increments for moving vertically along the salary guide once the collective negotiations agreement expires but an agreement on a successor contract has not been reached.
