The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) is publishing a final rule tomorrow that raises penalties for violations of its posting requirements from $210 to $525, taking advantage of the Federal Civil Penalties Inflation Adjustment Act Improvements Act of 2015. The increase will take effect 30 days after publication, on July 2, 2016.
EEOC enforces the posting of notifications for Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and the Genetic Information Non-Discrimination Act (GINA).
Though a strict inflationary adjustment would have increased the penalty to $725, the act limited increases to 150 percent of the last reported penalty ($210), or in this case $315. The two added together come to $525.
