$700K for defying vaccine requirement? Democrats push for jump in workplace fines

  • November 26, 2021

WASHINGTON – As the courts decide whether a COVD-19 vaccination requirement for 84 million workers can go into effect, Democrats are moving ahead on efforts to dramatically increase fines for workplace safety violations and double the number of federal inspectors.

The wide-ranging package of Democratic social spending priorities that passed the House last week and is pending in the Senate would increase the maximum penalty to $70,000 for a serious workplace violation and to $700,000 for a willful or repeated violation. The current top fines for those categories are $13,653 and $136,532.
