Within 30 days of the Fact-Finding Conference, the parties shall notify the BHRC whether the conference resulted in a resolution of the complaint. In the event that the complaint is resolved, the BHRC will notify the parties that the complaint has been dismissed. In the event that the complaint is not resolved through the Fact-Finding Conference, then the BHRC-designated fact-finder will prepare findings of fact and a conclusion as to whether probable cause exists that an unlawful practice of discrimination under Article 145 has occurred.
At the second BHRC meeting following the Fact-Finding Conference, the BHRC will consider the findings prepared by the fact-finder. The BHRC will accept or reject the findings by public vote. The BHRC will then provide the parties with the findings of fact and conclusion and shall notify the parties of the outcome of the vote. The notice will also indicate that the complainant has a right to pursue the matter in court by filing a lawsuit.
