(a) Any violation of this article which does not state a penalty shall be punishable by a fine of not less than $500.00 nor more than $1,000.00 for each offense. Each violation of this article shall constitute a separate offense.
(b) Any violation of this article may also result in an adjudicator ordering relief as may be deemed necessary. Relief may include, but is not limited to, an order: to cease the illegal conduct complained of; to pay actual damages for injury or loss suffered by the worker; to pay appropriate punitive damages when the violator acted with actual malice, willfully, or with such gross negligence as to indicate a wanton disregard of the worker's rights; to hire, reinstate, or upgrade the worker with or without back pay or provide such fringe benefits as the worker may have been denied; to take such action as may be necessary to make the worker whole, including, but not limited to, awards of interest on the worker's actual damages and back pay from the date of the violation. These remedies shall be cumulative, and in addition to any fines imposed.
