A charge may be amended to cure technical defects or omissions, including failure to swear to the charge; to clarify or amplify allegations made in the charge; to add, remove, or change a party; or if the purposes of the Act will be served by amendment, and such amendments shall relate back to the original filing date. All such amended charges shall be served immediately upon the respondent after receipt. However, an amendment alleging additional acts constituting unfair or discriminatory practices not directly related to or growing out of the subject matter of the original charge may be permitted only where at the date of the amendment the allegation could have been timely filed as a separate charge.</p> <p>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; <b>Source:</b> SL 1975, ch 16, &nbsp;1; 3 SDR 49, effective January 18, 1977; 12 SDR 151, 12 SDR 155, effective July 1, 1986.</p> <p>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; <b>General Authority:</b>SDCL <A HREF="/statutes/DisplayStatute.aspx?Type=Statute&Statute=20-13-27">20-13-27.</A></p> <p>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; <b>Law Implemented:</b>SDCL <A HREF="/statutes/DisplayStatute.aspx?Type=Statute&Statute=20-13-29">20-13-29</A>, <A HREF="/statutes/DisplayStatute.aspx?Type=Statute&Statute=20-13-31">20-13-31.</A></p> </div> </body> </html>
