Today the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission held a public hearing regarding the Agency’s pending proposed revisions to the EEO-1 Report to include a pay reporting component. As proposed, all employers with 100 or more employees would add information on aggregate pay ranges and hours worked to the EEO-1 report, beginning in 2017.

On Friday, the EEOC made a startling announcement regarding proposed revisions to the scope of information requested by the annual EEO-1 report. To further the pay equality goals of the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act, the EEOC wants to add aggregate data on pay ranges — including employees’ W-2s and hours worked — to the information already collected through the EEO-1 report, beginning with the September 2017 report. Currently, the EEO-1 report requires employers with 100 or more employees to submit certain company data categorized by race/ethnicity, gender, and job category.
Executive Summary: In accordance with the Obama administration’s efforts to combat a perceived gender gap in compensation, the EEOC has proposed revising the Employer Information Report (EEO-1) to require employers to provide information on employee earnings and hours worked in addition to the information currently collected (data regarding employees’ race, ethnicity and sex by job category). The agency will accept comments on the proposed revision until April 1, 2016.
Executive Summary: The EEO-1 Joint Reporting Committee has extended the deadline for all EEO-1 filers from September 30, 2015 to October 30, 2015.
The EEO-1 Joint Reporting Committee has extended the deadline for filing this year’s EEO-1 Reports. The new deadline to file reports is now October 30, 2015.
As we previously reported, the annual EEO-1 Reporting portal has opened and along with it some changes to the reporting requirements. Probably the most impactful change is the new requirement that companies may no longer file more than one EEO-1 report for the same address if the North American Industrial Classification System Code (NAICS) is the same for more than one of the entities. In other words, if your company has multiple entities at the same address and those entities, while legally distinct, engage in the same services, activities or product development you must now file a single consolidated report. For companies with complex organizational structures and/or significant acquisitions, this will require detailed review and assessment of your filings.
In addition to filing annual VETS-4212 reports, federal contractors with 50 or more employees and $50,000 or more in contracts (and non-government contract employers with more than 100 employees) must file annual EEO-1 surveys. The reporting portal for filing the EEO-1 reports opened today and will remain open until at least September 30.
In preparation for the 2013 EEO-1 survey, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) has announced that all passwords have been reset for security and confidentiality purposes. The EEOC will send reporting companies notification letters that will contain new passwords. See http://www.eeoc.gov/employers/eeo1survey/index.cfm.
