The EEOC announced on February 1, 2019 that due to the partial government shutdown, the 2018 EEO-1 filing portal will open “in early March” for filing of 2018 reports. As a result of the delayed opening, EEOC has extended the filing deadline by two months. The new deadline by which to file is May 31, 2019.
As a refresher, the typical EEO-1 filing deadline was changed to the first quarter of each year (from the third quarter) in connection with the proposed changes to add compensation information the EEO-1 report back in 2016. Though the proposed changes to the report have been postponed indefinitely, the changes to the EEO-1 reporting deadline remain in effect.
