Employers to Receive Increase in Notice-Posting Violations
On June 2, 2016, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission issued a Final Rule increasing the penalty to employers for violations of the notice-posting requirements of Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, and the Genetic Information Non-Discrimination Act from $210 per violation to $525. The last increase was in 2014, from $110 to $210. Employers can expect annual increases hereafter. Per the Final Rule, periodic inflation adjustments are required by the Federal Civil Penalties Inflation Adjustment Act Improvements Act of 2015, which requires each federal agency to issue regulations not later than July 1, 2016, and not later than January 15 of every year thereafter, adjusting for inflation the maximum civil penalty that may be imposed pursuant to each of the agency’s statutes, in order to maintain the remedial impact of civil monetary penalties and promote compliance with the law.
