CASL imposes personal liability on officers and directors and vicarious liability on entities for acts of employees and agents. Failure to comply with CASL could result in administrative monetary penalties of up to $10 million per violation for corporations and up to $1 million per violation for individuals. The private right of action arises as of July 1, 2017.
