Filing papers with the personnel appeals board.

(1) Filing generally. Papers which must be filed with the personnel appeals board shall not be deemed filed until actual receipt of the papers in the principal office of the personnel appeals board in Olympia, Washington during customary office hours. The executive secretary or designee shall issue a receipt and an acknowledgment stating the date filed.
(2) Filing by telephone facsimile.
(a) The filing of a written communication with the board by telephone facsimile is perfected when a legible copy of the written communication is reproduced on the board's telephone facsimile equipment in Olympia. The hours of operation of the board's telephone facsimile equipment are 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday, excluding legal holidays. If a transmission of a written communication commences after these hours of operation the written communication shall be deemed filed on the next succeeding business day.
(b) Any written communication filed with the board by telephone facsimile should be preceded by a cover page identifying the party making the transmission, listing the address, telephone and telephone facsimile number of such party, referencing the appeal to which the written communication relates, and indicating the date of, and the total number of pages included in, such transmission.
(c) No written communication filed by telephone facsimile should exceed fifteen pages in length, exclusive of the cover page required by this rule.
(d) The party attempting to file the written communication by telephone facsimile bears the risk that the written communication will not be timely received or legibly printed on the board's telephone facsimile equipment due to error in the operation or failure of the equipment being utilized by either the party or the board or to the line being busy. If the telephone facsimile is not received in legible form, it will be considered as if it had never been sent.
(e) The original of any document filed by telephone facsimile should be mailed to the board within twenty-four hours of the time that the telephone facsimile was sent.
