If the Commission determines that an employment policy is not being applied uniformly, the Commission shall cause written notice of its findings, including the recommendations of the Commission, to be provided to the employer and prospective employee. Upon receipt of a notice from the Commission that an employment policy is not being applied uniformly, the employer shall revise his or her employment policy consistent with the recommendations of the Commission.
