Iowa Attorney General Tom Miller announced Monday that a Michigan company selling labor law posters to the state of Iowa has agreed to pay Iowa $30,000. Mandatory Poster Agency of Lansing, MI, also agreed to refrain from misleading Iowa workplaces about its products and state requirement. The company and its owners, Thomas Fata, Steven Fata, and Joseph Fata, has done business in Iowa as Iowa Labor Law Poster Service, Iowa Food Service Compliance Center and Iowa Health Compliance Center. Miller's office said the company might have misled Iowans into believing that the company was a government agency or was acting on behalf of government, or that Iowans were required to purchase the company's posters in order to comply with state and federal workplace posting requirements. The state's Consumer Protection Division is mailing a notice to more than 1,500 Iowa workplaces that have purchased MPA posters in the past few years.
