Case Synopsis

The issue is whether an employee’s appeal to challenge a state employer’s disciplinary action is defective under NRS 284.390 and therefore subject to dismissal when that employee fails to attach a written notice as required by NAC 284.6562(2)(b). The court first analyzed the difference between jurisdictional rules and nonjurisdictional claim-processing rules. Then, the court considered the statutory scheme and regulations governing Kassebaum’s administrative challenge to her suspension.
