The Scoop on the EEO-1 Report

In order to stay compliant in today’s hectic HR landscape, below are some key points regarding the EEO-1.

The EEO-1 Deadline is now March 31, 2018

Who must file?

Private employers with 100 or more employees (including federal contractors and subcontractors).  If your company has federal contractors or subcontractors, there are some areas of data you can omit.  Private employers with fewer than 100 employees do not have to file.  Please visit the EEOC website for further details.

Workforce Snapshot Period:

For 2017 data, employers will provide data from October 1, 2017 through December 31, 2017.  Select one pay period that falls between these dates.

What new data must I report? 

Summary pay data and hours worked.  No individual pay will be reported. Job categories will have pay bands. Pay bands will be determined by using the W-2 box 1 pay for the entire year.  It will include all compensation for the employee.   Hours worked will be used to explain part-time status to the EEOC so employees are not viewed as less compensated within that category.

What can you do to ease these administrative tasks?

  • Create an account online so you can upload and easily track your data.
  • As a best practice, add your employee’s EEO-1 information at the time of hire in your HRIS.
  • Add this new deadline to your annual task list and set reminders to your calendars.
