(1) When the charging party proves that the respondent engaged in unlawful discrimination or illegal retaliation but the respondent proves the same action would have been taken in the absence of the unlawful discrimination or illegal retaliation, the case is a mixed motive case. In a mixed motive case, the commission will order respondent to refrain from the discriminatory conduct and may impose other conditions to minimize future violations, but the commission will not issue an order awarding compensation for harm to the charging party caused by an adverse action that would have been taken by the respondent regardless of an unlawful discriminatory or retaliatory motive.
