The EEO-1 Form is a report that certain companies must file with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC). If an employer has at least 100 employees or a federal contract has at least 50 employers, they are required to submit an EEO-1 Form under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1967.
The EEO-1 Form reports information about a company’s employees. Component 1 data includes:
Component 2 data is comprised of:
This data is collected by the US Department of Labor every year, however as of right now, the reporting of Component 2 data has been suspended.
EEO-1 Form reports are required to have employment data in any pay period from October through December, also called the “workforce snapshot period.” To determine if an employer has 100 employees and needs to file the EEO-1 Form, only employees on the payroll during the workforce snapshot period need to be counted.
The EEO-1 Form report is filed completely online through the EEOC website reporting system. The website has comprehensive instructions that will guide employers through the filing process.
If you are filing the EEO-1 Form report for the first time, you can access a simple registration form online. Once the form is completed, the EEOC will issue a company number that allows you to log into the reporting system.
On November 5, 2021, the United States Department of Labor’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration issued a mandatory COVID-19 vaccination and testing standard. This required all employers with at least 100 employees to be vaccinated or tested for COVID-19 before reporting to work.
As of January 26, 2022, this mandate has been withdrawn due to the Supreme Court’s recent decision to block the rule. Employers, no matter how many employees at the company, are no longer required to mandate vaccinations or testing for COVID-19. OSHA, however, still strongly encourages that workers get vaccinated for COVID-19.
The 2021 EEO-1 Component 1 data collection is currently open. The published deadline to submit and certify the 2021 EEO-1 Component 1 Report(s) was Tuesday, May 17, 2022.
All filers who have not submitted and certified their mandatory 2021 EEO-1 Component 1 Report(s) by the above May 17, 2022 deadline will have through Tuesday, June 21, 2022 to submit and certify their 2021 EEO-1 Component 1 Report(s).
The EEO-1 Form is a report that is filed by employers who have more than 100 employees or a federal contract with more than 50 employees. This report provides the EEOC with valuable information about the company’s employees like race, ethnicity, and gender.
The report can easily be filed online through the EEOC website and the current extended deadline for the 2021 EEO-1 Form report is June 21, 2022. If you are an employer that had 100 or more employees on payroll during the workforce snapshot period (October through December) you are required by law to file an EEO-1 Form report with the EEOC.
