1. Except as otherwise provided in this section, the Commission has jurisdiction to
investigate and take appropriate action regarding an alleged violation of this chapter
by a public officer or employee or former public officer or employee in any proceeding
commenced by an ethics complaint, which is filed with the Commission or initiated
by the Commission on its own motion, within 2 years after the alleged violation or
reasonable discovery of the alleged violation.
2. The Commission does not have jurisdiction regarding alleged conduct by a public
officer or employee or former public officer or employee for which:
(a) A complaint may be filed or, if the applicable limitations period has expired,
could have been filed with the United States Equal Employment Opportunity Commission
or the Nevada Equal Rights Commission; or
(b) A complaint or employment-related grievance may be filed or, if the applicable
limitations period has expired, could have been filed with another appropriate agency
with jurisdiction to redress alleged discrimination or harassment, including, without
limitation, a state or local employee-management relations board or similar state
or local agency,
but any bar on the Commission's jurisdiction imposed by this subsection applies only
to the extent that it pertains to the alleged discrimination or harassment, and this
subsection does not deprive the Commission of jurisdiction regarding the alleged conduct
if such conduct is sanctionable separately or concurrently under the provisions of
this chapter, irrespective of the alleged discrimination or harassment.
3. For the purposes of this section, a proceeding is commenced:
(a) On the date on which an ethics complaint is filed in the proper form with the
Commission in accordance with the regulations of the Commission; or
(b) If the ethics complaint is initiated by the Commission on its own motion, on the
date on which the Commission serves the public officer or employee or former public
officer or employee with notice of the ethics complaint in accordance with the regulations
of the Commission.
