Atlanta-based Beazer Homes USA, Inc. Thursday agreed to a $925,000 civil penalty for violations at its construction sites in 21 states, according to the U.S. Department of Justice.

U.S. Department of Justice officials filed the complaint in Tennessee, which was also joined by Florida, Colorado, Indiana, Maryland, Nevada and Virginia, according to the press release.
