  • On June 2, 2016 the EEOC increased the civil monetary penalty for violation of the notice-posting requirements in Title VII of the Civil Rights Act, Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), and Genetic Information Non-Discrimination Act (GINA). The increase is based on periodic inflation adjustments made in accordance with the Consumer Price Index.

    The maximum penalty per violation has increased from $210 to $525. The regulation took effect July 5, 2016.

    As a reminder: “Every employer, employment agency, labor organization, and joint labor-management committee controlling an apprenticeship or other training program must post notices of the pertinent parts of Title VII, ADA, and GINA in prominent, accessible places where notices to employees, applicants, and members are customarily maintained.”
