EEO-1 Reports Now Not Due Until March of 2021
Laws and regulations are changing rapidly. After articles are published, they are subject to change. Check back regularly for updates.
On Friday May 8th, the EEOC issued a Notice announcing a delay in its collection of EEO-1 Component 1 data until March of 2021. (Component 1 data is what we associate with the EEO-1 Report: employment data summarized by job category, race/ethnicity, and gender.)
EEO-1 Reports are usually due on September 30th. In 2019 the EEOC delayed the deadline while it requested a new, three-year approval for the Component 1 Report from the OMB. In announcing the delay, the EEOC explained that:
The EEOC recognizes the impact that the current public health emergency is having on workplaces across America and the challenges that both employers and employees alike are now facing. Filers… are dealing with unique and urgent issues. Delaying the collections until 2021 will ensure that EEO filers are better positioned to provide accurate, valid and reliable data in a timely manner.
Information for 2019 and 2020 will be submitted in the next cycle. As has been publicized recently, the EEOC does not intend to continue collecting the Component 2 pay and hours report.
