The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) has posted tentative deadlines for 2021 EEO-1 filings. Scheduled to open on April 12, 2022, the EEO-1 filing deadline is tentatively set for May 17, 2022.  

The shortened collection and filing period is a significant change from previous years and represents a major change that could result in even more pressure on employers that were forced to deal with a difficult EEO-1 filing cycle in 2021 that extended late into last year. 

The January/February 2022 edition of Western Grower & Shipper Magazine will hit mailboxes this week and includes insightful stories about everything from alleviating the Western water crisis to agriculture’s collaborative role in climate change management.

Today, the Supreme Court blocked enforcement of U.S. President Joe Biden’s COVID-19 vaccine-or-test mandate for workers at large businesses.

According to Politico, “while challenges to the mandates from businesses and Republican-led states were returned to lower courts, the ruling suggests that the justices are likely to rule against the business rule if the case reaches the court again, but would look more favorably on the mandate for health care workers.”
