DOL Increases Civil Penalty Amounts for 2019

In January, the Department of Labor (DOL) increased the civil penalty amounts that may be imposed on employers under the following federal laws:

  • The Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA)
  • The Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA)
  • The Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA)
  • The Occupational Safety and Health Act (OSH Act)

These increased amounts apply to civil penalties that are assessed after Jan. 23, 2019.

Employers should become familiar with the new penalty amounts and review their pay practices, benefit plan administration and safety protocols to ensure compliance with federal requirements.
