Penalties for Non-Compliance
In addition to facing potentially devastating civil liabilities should a tragedy occur, businesses that fail to comply with the law risk fines and may be subject to additional penalties for each day they remain non-compliant. With Kari’s Law now included within the amended Communications Act, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) has the power to enforce the rules, assign judgments, and collect penalties.
Companies have been forced to deploy remote worker options due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Remote workers must be able to dial 9-1-1 without the need for any additional digits being entered. Altura and Avaya want to help organizations that have deployed remote worker solutions understand how E911 compliance affects your organization now.
