EEOC has announced the opening of the 2021 EEO-1 Component 1 Data Collection platform. The deadline to complete filing this year is May 17, 2022 – giving employers only 5 weeks to complete the reporting. In an e-mail message announcing the opening, the Agency encouraged filers to begin the filing process “as soon as possible.” This is not the only government reporting deadline looming for federal contractors. As a reminder, the deadline for OFCCP contractor verification is June 30, 2022.
The Agency noted improvements have been made to improve the process by “making it more user-friendly and streamlining functions, including additional self-service options, and providing a new Filer Support Team Message Center for filer support.”
The new resources can be found on the Agency’s dedicated EEO-1 Component 1 website.
As a reminder, the EEO-1 reporting obligation applies to all private sector employers with 100 or more employees and federal contractors with 50 or more employees meeting certain criteria, and contains workforce demographics including data by race/ethnicity, sex, and job categories.
