As previously reported, EEOC is expected to publish tomorrow a Notice of Information Collection regarding EEO-1 Reporting.  An advance copy of the notice reports that

the EEOC is not seeking to renew Component 2 of the EEO-1.

Instead, the Commission has concluded it should consider information from the current Component 2 collection before deciding whether to submit a renewed pay data collection to OMB for approval.  The Agency feels

at this point in time, the unproven utility to its enforcement program of the pay data as defined 2016 Component 2 is far outweighed by the burden imposed on employers that must comply with the reporting obligation.

While the EEOC has decided not to seek extension of Component 2 at this time, it does intend to continue to collect Component 1.

This is a developing story – we will be back soon with more details.
