Analyzing the Statute of Limitations in Federal Enforcement Actions: What Businesses Should Know
Businesses, regardless of their size or jurisdictional range, are required to comply with a number of federal regulations and laws. These types of regulations, depending on the type of product or service the business offers are set by, among others: (1) the Federal Communications Commission, which regulates interstate communications by radio, television, wire, satellite, and cable in all states and U.S. territories; (2) the Federal Trade Commission, which regulates marketing and advertising; (3) the Environmental Protection Agency, which regulates conduct with environmental impacts; and (4) the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, which assures that businesses maintain a safe environment for their employees. Violating relevant regulations routinely results in a fine and/or penalty imposed by the government or the regulatory agency created by Congress. If a business fails to pay an imposed fine or penalty, it will undoubtedly expose itself to litigation.
