EEOC Increases Civil Penalty for Posting Violation

By Elizabeth Coonan

The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission issued a Final Rule increasing the maximum penalty for violation of posting requirements relating to Title VII and other employment-related laws. The agency cited inflation as the reason for increasing the maximum penalty from $210 to $525. Penalties will still be assessed on a per-violation basis. The final rule is effective 30 days after publication in the Federal Register. Employers should use this as an opportunity to check all postings for compliance.
