The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission will require covered employers to file EEO-1 compensation data for both calendar years 2017 and 2018 by Sept. 30, the agency indicated in a recent notice.


For all employers, the EEO-1 portal is now open for the collection of Component-1 data, and employers should be preparing to submit those data in normal course to the EEOC by May 31, says James A. Paretti, Jr. a Littler shareholder, in a new legal alert.

Previously, on April 25, the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia ordered the EEOC to collect detailed data on employee compensation and hours worked sorted by job category, pay band, race, ethnicity and gender (the so-called “Component-2” of the EEO-1 form) for calendar year 2018 by Sept. 30, 2019.
