Labor Law Compliance

U.S. Department of Labor Raises Labor Law Posting Penalties

The maximum penalty for federal posting violations is now going up by more than $400 under the increases announced by the Department of Labor - highlighting the seriousness about posting compliance.

The new maximum fine amounts are:

  • Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA): $178
  • Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC): $576
  • Job Safety and Health: It's the Law (OSHA): $13,653
  • Employee Polygraph Protection Act (EPPA): $21,663

To avoid fines, you need the most current version of each poster.

Stay compliant

Employers can stay in compliance by conspicuously displaying the most up-to-date labor law posters in areas where employees are able to view them such as break areas.
