Employers Must Report Expanded EEO-1 Data for Prior Years by September 30, 2019

pdate: EEOC Announces Intention to Not Renew Expanded EEO-1 Reporting Requirement

Our July 10, 2019 article below reported that a federal district court had reinstated expanded EEO-1 reporting requirements, with covered employers required to submit a “Component 2” report covering 2017 and 2018 pay data by September 30, 2019.

The EEOC has now announced that it does not plan to renew this expanded data collection and reporting requirement in future years in light of its revised estimate of how costly such requirements will be for employers. The EEOC also stated, however, that this decision does not change EEO-1 filers’ obligation to submit Component 2 data for 2017 and 2018 by September 30 of this year.

This announcement will likely trigger legal challenges, and we will issue future alerts regarding the status of the EEO-1 requirements.
