EEO-1 Report Update: Component 2 Data Reporting Requirement

As follow-up to our prior Benefit Beat article (EEO-1 Report Expanded, 5/8/19), the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) has contracted with the non-partisan and objective research organization (NORC) at the University of Chicago to collect and process Component 2 EEO-1 Compensation Data Collection for 2017 and 2018.

As a reminder, employers subject to Title VII of the Civil Rights Act who employ 100 or more employees, and certain federal government contractors and subcontractors with 50 or more employees are required to report Component 2 data as part of their EEO-1 report.  Component 2 data consists of salary information reported on the employees’ Form W-2, together with hours worked.  Component 2 data for both 2017 and 2018 must be submitted by September 30, 2019.  Employers report the Component 2 data through the Component 2 EEO-1 Online Filing System, or by creating a data file in accordance with certain specifications. 

Additional information including FAQs, together with instructions and guides, is available from the EECO-NORC designated webpage.
