3. Unless the Chair has waived the requirement of personal attendance, a respondent shall personally attend a hearing on the merits of the case.
4. If a respondent fails to file a written answer to the complaint or to appear personally at a hearing on the merits of the case without having obtained a waiver of appearance pursuant to subsection 3, such failure shall be deemed to be:

(b) A waiver of the right to an evidentiary hearing.
5. If a respondent appears at a hearing on the merits of the case and has not provided a written answer to the Commission, the Chair may:
