(a)   If the Commission determines after investigation that there is reasonable cause to believe that the respondent has engaged in a discriminatory practice, the Commission shall endeavor to eliminate the alleged discriminatory practices by conference, conciliation and persuasion.
   (b)   The terms of a conciliation agreement reached with a respondent shall require the respondent to refrain from discriminatory practices in the future and shall make such further provisions as may be agreed upon between the Commission or its assigned staff and the respondent.
   (c)   If a conciliation agreement is entered into, the Commission shall issue and serve on the complainant an order stating its terms. A copy of the order shall be delivered to the respondent and such public officers and persons as the Commission deems proper.
   (d)   Except for the terms of the conciliation agreement, the Commission shall not make public, without the written consent of the complainant and the respondent, information concerning efforts in a particular case to eliminate discriminatory practice by conference, conciliation or persuasion, whether or not there is a determination of reasonable cause or a conciliation agreement. The conciliation agreement itself shall not be made public unless the complainant and the respondent otherwise agree and the Commission also determines that disclosure is not required to further the purposes of this chapter.
   (e)   At the expiration of one year from the date of a conciliation agreement, and at other times in its reasonable discretion, the Commission or its staff may investigate whether the respondent is following the terms of the agreement.
   (f)   If a finding is made that the respondent is not complying with the terms of the agreement, the Commission shall take such action as it deems appropriate to assure compliance.
