EEO-1 Submission Deadline Extended
The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission has extended the deadline for filing the 2017 EEO-1 Survey. In a notice posted on the agency’s website late last month, the EEOC noted that while the original filing deadline had been March 31, 2018, that deadline has been extended to Friday, June 1, 2018.
EEO-1 Reports must be filed by employers with at least 100 employees, companies that are owned by or corporately affiliated with another company and the entire enterprise employs a total of 100 or more employees, or federal government prime contractors or first-tier subcontractors subject to Executive Order 11246 with 50 or more employees and with a federal contract amounting to $50,000 or more. While the 2017 report collects data on race, ethnicity and sex of workers by job category, it does not require employers to provide data about pay and hours worked, as originally required. This is because the Office of Management and Budget issued a memorandum that stayed EEOC’s plan to collect aggregate pay and hours data on the EEO-1 report pending further review.
The preferred method for filing the report is to use the agency's web-based filing system. Employers who have filed an EEO-1 report in the past should have received a reminder notice that includes login information, or they can obtain login information from the Joint Reporting Committee at email@example.com.
