Compliance Overview: EEO-1 REPORTING REQUIREMENTS

New Compliance Update.

The EEO-1 Report is a federally mandated survey that collects workforce data categorized by race, ethnicity, sex and job category.

Under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act (Title VII), employers with 100 or more employees and certain federal contractors must report this data to the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) by March 31 every year. However, the EEOC has extended the deadline for 2018 EEO-1 Reports to May 31, 2019. The filing system for 2018 reports is expected to open in early March 2019. This opening has been delayed due to the federal government shutdown.

The EEOC and the Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) use EEO-1 information to enforce federal prohibitions against employment discrimination and to address discriminatory pay practices.

This Compliance Overview provides general information about the EEO-1 reporting requirements.
