The 2018 EEO-1 reporting deadline, originally set for March 31, 2019, has been extended to May 31, 2019 due to the recent government shutdown. The EEOC, which planned to open the 2018 EEO-1 filing website during the second or third week of January 2019, closed its offices during the shutdown, and is now expected to launch in March. As employers wait for the filing website to launch, they may want to proactively gather employment data from the fourth quarter of 2018 so they will be prepared to file their EEO-1 report in a timely manner.
About the EEO-1 Report
The EEO-1 Report is a compliance survey mandated by federal statute and regulations and requires company employment data to be categorized by race/ethnicity, gender, and job category. All private sector employers with 100 or more employees and federal contractors and subcontractors with 50 or more employees AND a federal contract or subcontract of $50,000 or more are required to file an annual EEO-1 report.
Who Uses the EEO-1 Report?
The EEO-1 Report is used by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) and the Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) to collect data from private employers and government contractors regarding their female and minority workforces. The agencies also use EEO-1 Report data to support civil rights enforcement and to analyze employment patterns for existing or potential discrimination.
