Case Notes

  Chapter 92F not a "conflicting statute on the same subject matter" as chapter 89, within the meaning of this section, and thus is not preempted by chapter 89 or any collective bargaining agreement negotiated under it.  83 H. 378, 927 P.2d 386.

  Although an application of §84-13 was necessary to decide the union's complaint under §89-13, it could not be said that the question arose under chapter 84; where union filed the complaint with the board under this section, the board had "exclusive original jurisdiction" to determine prohibited practice complaints and the ethics commission would not have had jurisdiction to make that determination; thus, the board had the power to apply §84-13 in order to decide whether a prohibited practice  violation actually occurred and it did not exceed its jurisdiction in ruling that a violation did not occur based on the application of §84-13.  116 H. 73, 170 P.3d 324.

  Employee must fully exhaust the remedies covered in collective bargaining agreement before employee can bring action in circuit court.  2 H. App. 50, 625 P.2d 1046.
