FTC bans business from selling OSHA regulatory posters

July 21, 2017 Washington, D.C. — The Federal Trade Commission announced July 14 that a court order has banned a Florida operation from selling the posters of or misrepresenting itself as an affiliate of the Occupational Safety and Health Administration. The company was accused of deceiving small businesses into paying for government-required regulatory posters, which are available at no cost.

The court also imposed a judgment that the defendants must pay over $3.8 million to the FTC. The payment will be partially suspended if the defendants surrender their assets.

The U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Florida, Tampa Division, entered the order on July 10.
