EEO-1 Report Update
As discussed in our May and August editions, employers subject to EEO-1 reporting requirement were required to submit a second report containing Component 2 data, which was due by September 30, 2019 (see EEO-1 Report Expanded, and EEO-1 Report Update: Component 2 Data Reporting Requirement). The EEO-1 Report is a compliance survey mandated by federal law that requires affected entities to report employment data by race or ethnicity, gender and job category, referred to as Component 1 data; Component 2 data refers to salary information reported on employees’ W-2, together with hours worked.
In a recent notice requesting re-authorization for continuing the collection of Component 1 data, which has been required for a number of years, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission did not request re-authorization for collecting Component 2 data. What this means for now is that the required reporting of Component 2 data for 2017 and 2018 data, is, until further notice, a one-time obligation.
