Federal EEO-1 Reporting Now Open

EEOC (The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission) has announced the opening of the 2021 EEO-1 Component 1 Data Collection platform.  The deadline to complete filing this year is May 17, 2022 – giving employers only 5 weeks to complete the reporting.

To meet this deadline, the EEOC strongly encourages eligible filers to begin the filing process as soon as possible.

Employers should visit the EEO-1 Component 1 website for the latest filing updates and additional information.

The EEOC is also improving the filing process by making it more user-friendly and streamlining functions, including additional self-service options. Employers can visit the Filer Support Center to request assistance and find helpful resources, including fact sheets and FAQs.

The most recent update also announced EEOC’s discontinuation of the Type 6 Establishment Report for employers who have establishments with fewer than 50 employees. Instead, employers will now be required to use the Type 8 report.

Who Must File

An employer must file an EEO-1 report if they answer YES to one or more of these questions:
  1. Does the entire company (at all locations combined) have at least 100 employees?
  2. Is the company affiliated through common ownership or centralized management with other entities in an enterprise with a total employee count of 100 or more?
  3. Does the company or any of its establishments have a contract with the federal government worth $50,000 or more and have 50 or more employees?
  4. Is the company or any of its establishments a federal government contractor that serves as a depository of government funds in any amount or a financial institution that is an issuing and paying agent for U.S. Savings Bonds and Savings Notes in any amount?
If you answered NO to all of the questions above, you do not need to file an EEO-1 report. If you are unsure about the answer to question 2, you should speak with an attorney.

As more information is released on this topic we will be sure to update you via our website or email. We will also do our best to guide you and continue to advise on best practices during the days ahead.

The employee classifications for the EEO should be reviewed and updated now. If you are not already working with your HR Consultant, or are unsure if your company needs to file, please reach out to your HR Consultant today.
