EEOC Increases Fines for Violating Posting Requirements

2016-07-22

On June 2, 2016 the EEOC announced that it was increasing the civil monetary fines for violation of the notice-posting requirements in Title VII, Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), and Genetic Information Non-Discrimination Act (GINA).  The notices must be posted in “prominent and accessible” spots in the workplace.  This requirement applies to private employers, federal contractors and subcontractors, state and local governments, and educational institutions employing 15 or more individuals.

EEOC would discover the violation during the course of an investigation of a discrimination charge. The maximum penalty per violation has increased from $210 to $525.
