EEOC Delays EEO Data Collections Due to COVID-19 Public Health Emergency

On May 7, 2020, the U.S Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) announced it will delay the collection of 2019 EEO-1 data because of the COVID-19 public health emergency.  The agency anticipates that it will begin collecting 2019 and 2020 EEO-1 data in March 2021.

Generally, private-sector employers with 100 or more employees are required to file an annual EEO-1. Employers are encouraged to ensure that 2019 and 2020 data gets pulled and preserved so that it is ready for next years’ filing.
