Compliance Alerts


Regulations were amended to adjust the amounts of civil monetary penalties assessed or enforced by the U.S. Department of Labor and the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, including workplace poster requirement violations. An employer that violates federal poster requirements may be assessed various civil penalties totaling over $35,000. New mandatory posting notices, required for employers covered by the Fair Labor Standards Act, and the Employee Polygraph Protection Act, were issued by the U.S. Department of Labor. New mandatory posters were also issued for employers covered by the Family & Medical Leave Act, and Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. Additionally, the OSHA Injury and Illness Recordkeeping regulation was amended to require employers to inform each employee of their right to report work-related injuries and illnesses free from retaliation. The mandatory OSHA posting text was revised to include the new Anti-Retaliation informational component by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration. Employers can meet the new communication requirement by posting the most recent OSHA poster.
