HRWS: EEOC increases Penalty for Poster Violation

Effective immediately, the penalty for failing to post required EEO notices in the workplace has increased from $612 to $659. According to the notice, the penalty is assessed for each offense, so employers with multiple worksites and/or locations, where notices to applicants and employees are customarily posted, may face additional penalties.

Federal law requires employers to post information about employees’ statutory rights under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), the Genetic Information Non-Discrimination Act, and Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 in a prominent, easily accessible location in the workplace where notices to candidates and employees are customarily posted. (In New York, the poster must also be uploaded to the company website or sent through email to staff members.
