Following the announcement placing the EEO-1 pay data requirement on indefinite hold, the EEO-1 Joint Reporting Committee has clarified open questions regarding the details for 2017 EEO-1 Reports. In an e-mail sent to report filers, the Committee clarified:
- The deadline to file EEO-1 reports for 2017 is March 31, 2018;
- The Reports must be based on a payroll period in October, November or December, 2017; and,
- Filers may use the same EEO-1 form used in 2016.
Keep in mind that EEOC has not yet fully updated its website (FAQs, Fact Sheet, etc.) to reflect this new information, although this clarification has been included on the home page.
As we mentioned in our prior blog post, that based on the recently received clarification from VETS, government contractors for their reporting in 2018 and going forward, will gain the efficiency of pulling a single data snapshot as of December 31 for reporting on both EEO-1 (filed by 3/31/2018) and VETS-4212 (filed between 8/1 – 9/30/2018) reports. While the timing of the submission of the reports will remain different, employers looking for efficiencies can use a single snapshot as of the previous year’s December 31st.
