(a) If the Commission determines that one or more allegations of a complaint filed
under this title are false and that the complainant knew them to be false when filed,
or that one or more of the allegations of a complaint are frivolous and without merit,
the Commission may refuse to review or investigate any subsequent complaint filed
by that complainant for a period of up to 3 years.
(b) When the totality of the evidence warrants action to deter future abuse of the
protections made available under this title, the Commission may also recommend to
the administrative law judge:
(1) that monetary sanctions be imposed against the complainant in the amount of the
costs incurred by the State and the business entity in the investigation and review
of the false or frivolous complaint, including reasonable attorneys' fees; and
(2) that the complainant be disqualified from bidding and contract awards on State
projects for a period of not more than 3 years.
