From the time the Commission receives the complaint to the time the investigation is completed and a finding by the administrative law judge has been made, the Commission is a neutral fact-finder and represents neither party.

Following the investigation, if the administrative law judge finds probable cause to believe that discrimination occurred, then the Commission becomes an advocate for the people of Iowa and tries to negotiate the best possible settlement for the complainant.
