(b) Commission’s failure to give notice of any of the items in ORS 183.413 (Notice to parties before hearing of rights and procedure), unless notice of that item is also required by another applicable state or federal law, does not invalidate any determination or order of the ALJ unless upon an appeal from or review of the determination or order, a court finds that the failure affects the substantial rights of the complainant. In the event of such finding, the court shall direct Commission as to what steps it shall take to remedy the prejudice to the rights of the complainant.
