As anticipated, the EEOC has released updates to its proposed rule obligating certain employers and federal contractors who file annual EEO-1 reports to include employee pay data information in addition to already-required employee demographic data.
While the updated proposed rule would require the collection and reporting of the same general pay data information as initially proposed, the updated rule:
- extends the due date for the first EEO-1 report to require this additional data from September 30, 2017 to March 31, 2018;
- aims to simplify data collection by establishing a calendar year wage calculation period and moving the “workforce snapshot” period for purposes of counting employees to a pay period of the employer’s choice between October 1 and December 31 of the reporting year; and
- provides guidance on reporting hours worked for exempt employees.
The updated proposed rule is subject to a 30-day comment period ending on August 15, 2016.
