The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission on Wednesday June 1, 2016 increased the maximum penalty for employers that violate notice posting provisions of Title VII and other statutes from $210 to $525 per violation.  To avoid this $525 penalty, simply make sure your mandatory postings are up to date AND POSTED regarding Title VII and other anti-discrimination, anti-harassment and anti-retaliation laws.  Simple task for employers, post the laws and avoid paying $525 – think of what else you could do with $525 instead of paying a fine for simply failing to tack up a poster.

Placing such postings in an area where employees will see them is key to compliance here people!  Posting on the bathroom door, on the inside of the bathroom door, on the refrigerator, in a conspicuous spot in the break room are all good places to ensure that the postings are seen.
