516.20  STATE/FEDERAL REMEDIES.
   (a)   The remedies provided for in this chapter are in addition to, not in lieu of, those provided for by state and federal law. This chapter shall therefore not be construed so as to limit a person' s right to file complaint with any state or federal agency, board, tribunal or court vested with jurisdiction to receive, review and act upon complaints of discrimination. This chapter shall not be construed as limiting the right of any person to seek remedies in courts of competent jurisdiction pursuant to state or federal law which grant private rights of action to persons aggrieved by discriminatory acts of the type prohibited by this chapter. There is no requirement that an aggrieved person file a complaint with the City pursuant to this chapter before seeking any other federal, state or other remedy available to the person.
   (b)   A person' s election to seek remedies provided for in this chapter shall not operate to toll any statute of limitation set forth in state or federal law for pursuing remedies under state or federal law for acts of discrimination of the type prohibited by this chapter.
