In its latest progress report, submitted to the Court on May 24, 2019, the EEOC details its efforts over the past weeks to get the new EEO-1 pay data reporting tool up and running.

The report details meetings between EEOC and NORC to develop training materials and a Help Desk to field questions from filers among other items necessary to open the pay data collection tool.

Per the report, EEOC anticipates the Help Desk to be fully operational by June 17 and is looking to provide an update on the collection of the 2017 and 2018 pay data, as well as contact information for the Help Desk, on or about June 3rd.

We will continue to report as we receive more information about the Help Desk and data collection efforts.
