Private employers with 100 employees or more and federal contractors with 50 employees or more and $50,000 in contract(s) are required to submit and certify an EEO-1 Report with the Joint Reporting Committee, comprised of the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) and the Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP), not later than March 31, 2018.
The EEO-1 Report collects data on the race, ethnicity, and sex of workers, by job category. The employment data used for the 2017 EEO-1 report should be collected using a payroll period in October, November, or December 2017, the fourth quarter of calendar year 2017. This payroll period is what the EEOC refers to as the 2017 “workforce snapshot period.”
Employers submit EEO-1 reports via the EEO-1 Online Filing System on the EEOC’s website or will utilize this portal to electronically transmit a data file containing the EEO-1 data. This website is accessible at: https://www.eeoc.gov/employers/eeo1survey/index.cfm.
Questions about this requirement and the process may be submitted via email to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
The EEOC had planned to collect additional information this year, including aggregate W-2 pay and hours-worked data. However, the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) stayed the additional requirements pending OMB’s review.
