(a) If upon all the reliable, probative and substantive evidence the Board determines that the respondent has engaged in, or is engaging in any unlawful discriminatory practice charged in the complaint, the Board shall state its findings of fact and conclusions and shall issue and cause to be served upon the respondent an order or orders requiring the respondent to cease and desist from such discriminatory practice and to take such further affirmative or other action as will effectuate the purposes of this chapter. Such order or orders may include, but shall not be limited to measures requiring the hiring, reinstatement or upgrading and promotion of employees, with or without back pay, and admission or restoration to union membership, and may further contain a requirement for reporting compliance with the orders of the Board. If the Board directs payment of back pay, it shall make allowance for interim earnings. Upon the submission of acceptable reports of compliance, the Board may issue a declaratory order stating that the respondent has ceased to engage in unlawful discriminatory practices.
(b) If the Board or the committee or subcommittee of the Board conducting the hearing finds that no probable cause exists for crediting the charges in the complaint, or if, upon consideration of all of the evidence, it is determined that the respondent has not engaged in any discriminatory practice, the Board shall state in writing the findings of fact and conclusions in this regard, and shall issue and cause to be served on the complainant and the respondent, an order dismissing the complaint.
(c) Any party to the proceeding, claiming to be aggrieved by a final order of the Board, including a determination by the Board that a prima-facie case has not been established in support of a complaint, may obtain judicial review from such final order by resort to any court of competent jurisdiction pursuant to the provisions of Ohio R.C. Chapter 2506.
