Initial Determination & Appeals
A mixed determination of both “probable cause” and “no probable cause” means that the Investigator determined that with at least one of your claims, there is reason to believe that discrimination may have happened (probable cause) and with your other claims, there is not enough evidence to believe discrimination happened (no probable cause).
No Probable Cause
If the Examiner finds “no probable cause,” you may appeal that decision to the Equal Opportunities Commission (EOC) for review. It is important to remember that the EOC cannot consider any new evidence once you appeal. So if you have any information you want to be considered, be sure to submit it to the Hearing Examiner, before they make a decision.
If you do not appeal the Hearing Examiner’s finding of “no probable cause,” the case will be closed.
