The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) issued a proposal that would require employers to submit pay and work-hour data as part of their 2018 EEO-1 Reports by Sept. 30, 2019.
Known as “Component 2” of the annual EEO-1 Survey, the pay and work-hour data requirements were established in 2016 but blocked in 2017. In March 2019, a federal court reinstated them and ordered the EEOC to indicate how it would collect Component 2 data for the 2018 EEO-1 (which had already opened, for “Component 1” data only, on March 18, 2019). The EEOC filed its proposal on April 3, 2019. The court may still approve, modify or reject the plan.
Employers subject to EEO-1 reporting should:
- Prepare to submit information about their employees’ 2018 pay and work hours to the EEOC; and
- Monitor the EEOC’s website for additional guidance.
- Employers may have to submit 2018 pay and work-hour data to the EEOC by Sept. 30, 2019.
- Employers should still submit their 2018 EEO-1 “Component 1” data by May 31, 2019.
- The EEO-1 filing mandate applies to employers with 100 or more employees and to certain federal contractors.
