      NRS 463A.010  Legislative findings and declaration.  The Legislature finds and declares that:

      1.  The relationship which exists between a labor organization and the employees whom it represents or seeks to represent in collective bargaining is such that it may significantly affect the conduct of a gaming operation by an employer.

      2.  In the past, attempts have been made by persons whose background is not suitable for association with licensed gaming to gain positions of control in labor organizations representing or seeking to represent gaming casino employees in this state.

      3.  In order to carry out the declared policy of this state that licensed gaming be conducted freely and honestly, and in order to protect the welfare of the employees of the gaming industry which is fundamental to the economy of this state, it is necessary to determine the suitability of any person who performs or seeks to perform certain significant functions in the representation of gaming casino employees in this state.

      (Added to NRS by 1975, 1441; A 2001, 3092)

Ê but does not include personnel whose duties are related solely to such nongaming activities as entertainment, hotel operation, maintenance and the preparation and serving of food and beverages.

      4.  “Labor organization” means an organization of any kind, or any agency or employee representation committee or plan, which exists for the purpose, in whole or in part, of dealing or seeking to deal with employers of gaming casino employees concerning grievances, labor disputes, wages, rates of pay, hours of employment or conditions of work of gaming casino employees.

      (Added to NRS by 1975, 1442; A 2001, 3093)

      NRS 463A.030  Information concerning certain personnel of labor organization to be filed with Board; regulations of Commission.

      1.  Not later than the date on which a labor organization which represents or seeks to represent gaming casino employees in this state begins an organizational activity directed at a gaming casino employee, the labor organization shall file with the Board a list of its personnel who:

      (a) Adjust or seek to adjust grievances for, negotiate or administer the wages, hours, working conditions or conditions of employment of any gaming casino employee;

      2.  Each person listed shall file with the Board:

      (c) The person’s criminal record if any, covering at least a 10-year period unless the Board determines that a shorter period is appropriate.

      3.  The Commission shall by regulation prescribe the frequency or circumstances or both with or under which the list must be revised.

      4.  The Commission may by regulation prescribe:

      (a) Any further information to be required concerning each person listed or each person performing a particular function.

      (b) The addition of other personnel to the list whose duties significantly affect the conduct of a gaming operation.

      5.  In adopting regulations pursuant to this section, the Commission shall proceed in the manner prescribed in chapter 463 of NRS.

      NRS 463A.040  Grounds for disqualification of personnel of labor organization.  The Commission may individually disqualify any person from performing any one or more of the functions whose performance requires listing, if it finds that:

      1.  The person has been convicted in any jurisdiction of any crime involving moral turpitude or indicating a lack of business integrity or honesty, whether denominated a felony or misdemeanor.

      2.  The person has made or caused to be made any statement in a document provided to the Board or its agents or orally to a Board member or agent in connection with an investigation or listing which was, at the time and in the light of the circumstances under which it was made, false or misleading.

      3.  The person is a member of or an associate of organized criminal elements. Identification as such a member or associate by any law enforcement agency, legislative body or crime commission constitutes evidence which may be considered by the Nevada Gaming Commission.

      4.  The person’s moral character and integrity, as evidenced by the person’s prior conduct, are such as to create a reasonable belief that performance by the person of the specified function would not be consistent with the policy of this state that gaming be conducted freely and honestly or with the welfare of the employees of the gaming industry.

      (Added to NRS by 1975, 1443)

      NRS 463A.050  Investigation of personnel of labor organization: Powers of Board; costs; consultants; recommendations.

      1.  To determine suitability under and compliance with the provisions of this chapter, the Board may investigate any person whose name is listed by a labor organization or who it believes is performing or seeking to perform a function which requires listing. For this purpose the Board is vested with all of the powers which it possesses for the investigation of an applicant for or holder of a state gaming license, and may further make such examination as it reasonably deems necessary of the financial records of any labor organization for whom such a person is performing or seeking to perform such a function.

      2.  The cost of any investigation required by this section must be paid by the Board from money appropriated or authorized to be used for this purpose.

      3.  Whenever the Board undertakes an investigation pursuant to this section, the Board shall employ or consult with some person who has a professional background in the field of labor relations. The same services may be retained to assist the Commission upon any subsequent hearing of the matter.

      4.  The Board shall, if appropriate, recommend to the Commission that a person investigated be disqualified.

      (Added to NRS by 1975, 1443; A 2001, 3094)

      NRS 463A.060  Disqualification of personnel of labor organization: Notice of recommendation and reasons; notice of defense.

      3.  Oral evidence shall be taken only upon oath or affirmation administered by the Commission.

      4.  Every party to a hearing is entitled:

      5.  If the respondent does not testify in his or her own behalf, the respondent may be called and examined as if under cross-examination.

      6.  The hearing need not be conducted according to technical rules relating to evidence and witnesses. Any relevant evidence may be admitted and is sufficient in itself to support a finding if it is the sort of evidence on which responsible persons are accustomed to rely in the conduct of serious affairs, regardless of the existence of any common-law or statutory rule which might make improper the admission of such evidence over objection in a civil action.

      7.  The parties or their counsel may by written stipulation agree that certain specified evidence may be admitted even though such evidence might otherwise be subject to objection.

      (Added to NRS by 1975, 1446)

      NRS 463A.120  Hearing: Official notice.  The Commission may take official notice of any generally accepted information or technical or scientific matter within the field of gaming, and of any other fact which may be judicially noticed by the courts of this state.

      (Added to NRS by 1975, 1447)

      NRS 463A.130  Hearing: Amended and supplemental notices and statements.  The Commission may, before submission of the matter for decision, permit the filing of amended or supplemental notices or statements, and shall notify all parties thereof and provide a reasonable opportunity for objections thereto.

      (Added to NRS by 1975, 1447)

      NRS 463A.140  Hearing: Contempt.  If any person in proceedings before the Commission disobeys or resists any lawful order or refuses to respond to a subpoena, or refuses to take the oath or affirmation as a witness or thereafter refuses to be examined, or is guilty of misconduct during the hearing or so near the place thereof as to obstruct the proceeding, the Commission may certify the facts to the district court in and for the county where the proceedings are held. The court shall thereupon issue an order directing the person to appear before the court and show cause why the person should not be punished as for contempt. The court order and a copy of the statement of the Commission shall be served on the person cited to appear. Thereafter the court has jurisdiction of the matter, and the same proceedings shall be had, the same penalties may be imposed and the person charged may purge the contempt in the same way as in the case of a person who has committed a contempt in the trial of a civil action before a district court.

      (Added to NRS by 1975, 1447)

      NRS 463A.150  Failure to file notice of defense or appear.  Failure of a respondent to file a notice of defense or to request or appear at the hearing constitutes an admission of all matters and facts contained in the complaint filed with respect to such respondent.

      (Added to NRS by 1975, 1447)

      NRS 463A.170  Rehearing.  The Commission may, upon motion therefor made within 10 days after service of a decision and order, order a rehearing before the Commission upon such terms and conditions as it may deem just and proper if a petition for judicial review of the decision and order has not been filed. Such motion shall not be granted except upon a showing that there is additional evidence which is material and necessary and reasonably calculated to change the decision of the Commission, and that sufficient reason existed for failure to present such evidence at the hearing of the Commission. The motion shall be supported by an affidavit of the moving party or counsel for the moving party showing with particularity the materiality and necessity of the additional evidence and the reason why it was not introduced at the hearing. Upon rehearing, rebuttal evidence to the additional evidence shall be permitted. After rehearing, the Commission may modify its decision and order as the additional evidence may warrant.

      (Added to NRS by 1975, 1448)

      NRS 463A.180  Judicial review: Petition; intervention; stay of enforcement.

      5.  The filing of the petition shall not stay enforcement of the decision or order of the Commission, but the Commission itself may grant a stay upon such terms and conditions as it deems proper.

      (Added to NRS by 1975, 1448)

      NRS 463A.190  Judicial review: Record on review.

      1.  Upon written request of petitioner and upon payment of such reasonable costs and fees as the Commission may prescribe, the complete record on review, or such parts thereof as are designated by the petitioner, shall be prepared by the Commission.

The motion shall be supported by an affidavit of the moving party or his or her counsel showing with particularity the materiality and necessity of the additional evidence and the reason why it was not introduced in the administrative hearing. Rebuttal evidence to the additional evidence shall be permitted. In matters in which additional evidence is presented to the Commission, the Commission may modify its decisions and orders as the additional evidence may warrant and shall file with the reviewing court a transcript of the additional evidence together with any modifications of the decision and order, all of which shall become a part of the record on review.
