Probable Cause Findings

A finding of probable cause does not resolve a civil rights complaint. Rather, it means the State has concluded its preliminary investigation and determined there is sufficient evidence to support reasonable suspicion that the Indiana Civil Rights Law has been violated.

Indiana civil rights laws provide remedies, including compensatory damages and injunctive relief, such as changes in the employer’s policies and training. A public hearing is necessary to determine whether a violation of Indiana Civil Rights Law occurred as alleged by the complainants. Further, the burden of proof in a civil rights complaint falls on the complainant and all accused parties are assumed innocent until proven guilty.
