Penalties are placed on validators who misbehave.

Penalties and slashings are concepts in Ethereum to encourage nodes to be active, honest and not misbehaving. Validators who are offline or vote in an incorrect way will experience penalties. These penalties aren't as severe as slashing events and won't kick out the node from the validating set.
