Increased penalty for failure to Post EEOC Workplace Poster

The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) announced an increase in the penalty for failure to post the EEOC notice from $559 to $569 per violation, effective March 18, 2020.

As background, employers subject to various laws enforced by the EEOC should ensure that they have the appropriate EEOC notice posted in their workplaces.  The EEOC enforces laws that prohibit workplace discrimination under such laws as:

  • Title VII of the Civil Rights Act (relating to discrimination on the basis of race, color, religion, national origin, or sex);
  • Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and ADA Amendments Act (ADAA);
  • Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA);
  • Genetic Information Nondiscrimination Act of 2008 (GINA); and
  • Pregnancy Discrimination Act (PDA)

The EEOC poster, “Equal Employment Opportunity is the Law” is available in four languages (English, Spanish, Arabic and Chinese), and, can be obtained by downloading and printing it via EEOC website.
