The EEOC increases fines for posting violations. New regulations more than doubled the fines for employers who fail to comply with notice posting requirements. Each violation now carries a $210 fine, up from $100. The EEOC requires private employers, as well as the state and local governments employing 15 or more individuals.
Post notices including information under the following laws:
- Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964;
- Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990; and
- Genetic Information Non-Discrimination Act.
These notices must be prominently displayed in workplace areas accessible to employees and/or labor representatives.
This increase took effect April 18, 2014. The increased civil penalty will apply only to those violations that occur after the rule’s effective date.
