EEO-1 Update

The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) has recently announced a new filing deadline for Employer Information Reports (EEO-1). The new deadline is Monday, August 23, 2021.  Due to the impacts of COVID-19 this reporting period will include both the 2019 and 2020 EEO-1 Component 1 forms.

Employers subject to Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 (Title VII) (e.g., those with 15+ employees) who also employ 100 or more employees, are required to file an annual EEO-1 Report with the EEOC. This filing requirement also includes most federal government contractors with 50+ employees and a federal contract of $50,000 or more. Employers subject to Title VII with fewer than 100 employees who are owned or affiliated with another company or where there is centralized ownership, control or management (e.g., central control of personnel policies and labor relations) so as to legally constitute a single enterprise with 100+ employees, must also file.

Employers subject to EEO-1 filing mandates should visit the EEOC’s newly launched EEO-1 Component 1 website for the latest in filing updates, FAQ’s  and additional information.
