EEO-1 Component 2 Reporting Update
The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) recently reinstated the requirement to collect two years of pay data for 2017 and 2018 and that covered employers would be required to file this information by September 30, 2019. This will be the first time that covered EEO-1 filers will have to provide the EEOC with wage and hour data broken down by race/ethnicity, gender and job category.
Employers, including federal contractors, are required to submit Component 2 compensation data for 2017 if they have 100 or more employees during the 2017 workforce snapshot period. Employers, including federal contractors, are required to submit Component 2 compensation data for 2018 if they have 100 or more employees during the 2018 workforce snapshot period.
Federal contractors with 50-99 employees are not required to report Component 2 compensation data.
How do I file the EEO-1 report?
EEO-1 reporting is an electronic, online application. The EEOC requires that EEO-1 reports be submitted via the EEO-1 Online Filing System, or as an electronically transmitted data file. The EEOC has reported that it expects the data file upload function to be available by August 15, 2019.
Employers required to file the report should have received a USPS letter and email notification from the EEOC which includes a User ID needed to access the EEO-1 Online Filing System.
If you did not receive the letter or email, contact the EEOC Helpdesk via email EEOCcompdata@norc.org or by phone Toll Free: 877-324-6214.
