Increased Fines for Employers Failing to Comply with EEO Posting Requirements

Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and other civil rights statutes require that covered employers post notices describing equal employment opportunity laws and how employees and applicants can file a complaint for perceived violations of those laws. The required notice “Equal Employment Opportunity is the Law” poster must be posted in a conspicuous place where other notices to employees and job applicants are customarily located. For those employers that are required to post the notice, generally those with 15 or more employees, the civil fines for failing to do so have been increased from $210 to $525 per violation.

The required notice for covered employers is available here:
