Two reporting deadlines are quickly approaching. All employers with 100 or more employees, or federal government contractors and first-tier subcontractors with 50 or more employees and at least $50,000 in contracts, must file the EEO-1 survey with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC). The purpose of EEO-1 reporting is to identify areas of discrimination in the workplace. Here is what you need to know.
The EEO-1 report for 2017 and 2018 is required to be filed by no later than May 31, 2019. Previously, this data had been due by September 30th each year. In 2018, the date changed to March 31st, but on February 1, 2019, due to the extended government shutdown, an extension was granted to May 31st. This report includes all employees (part-time and full-time), job classifications, and races. This information is collected from one payroll in the fourth quarter.
The EEO-1 Component 2 data for 2017 and 2018 is required to be filed by no later than September 30, 2019. Required information for this reporting includes pay data and hours worked from the Form W-2’s by race, ethnicity, and gender.
Filings must be completed online through the EEOC website, where additional instructions and FAQ’s are also available.
