1. If the Commissioner denies an application for, or refuses to renew, a license,
the Commissioner shall notify the applicant or licensee and state in writing the reason
for the denial or refusal. The applicant or licensee may apply in writing, pursuant to NRS 679B.310, for a hearing before the Commissioner to determine the reasonableness of the denial
or refusal. The hearing must be held within 30 days and conducted pursuant to NRS 679B.330. The applicant or licensee may waive the requirement to hold the hearing within 30
days, in writing, before a hearing is held.
2. The Commissioner may suspend, revoke or refuse to renew the license of a business
organization if the Commissioner finds, after hearing, that a violation by a natural
person was known or should have been known by one or more of the partners, officers
or managers acting on behalf of the organization, the violation was not reported to
the Commissioner and no corrective action was taken.
3. In addition to or in lieu of a denial, suspension or revocation of, or refusal
to renew, a license, an administrative fine of not less than $25 nor more than $500
may be imposed for each violation or act. An order imposing a fine must specify the date, not less than 15 days nor more than
30 days after the date of the order, before which the fine must be paid. If the fine is not paid when due, the Commissioner shall immediately revoke the
license of a licensee and the fine must be recovered in a civil action brought on
behalf of the Commissioner by the Attorney General. The Commissioner shall immediately deposit all such fines collected with the State
Treasurer for credit to the State General Fund.
4. The Commissioner retains the authority to enforce the provisions of, and impose
any penalty or pursue any remedy authorized by, this title against any person who
is under investigation for or charged with a violation of a provision of this title
even if the license or registration of the person has been surrendered or has lapsed
by operation of law.
5. A licensee must pay all applicable fees, including renewal fees, and maintain any
required education during a period of suspension of his or her license.
