Establishing the judicial estoppel defense against a bankrupt plaintiff will be harder in the Eleventh Circuit following Smith v. Haynes & Haynes P.C., 940 F.3d 635 (11th Cir. 2019).
Articles Discussing Title VII Of The Civil Rights Act Of 1964.
I am an HR manager for a boutique beauty supply shop based in Atlanta, Georgia. We are planning to expand into new storefronts in both San Diego, California and Brooklyn, New York. We have a standard grooming policy because our company promotes personal care products and it is important to us that client-facing employees are clean and well-groomed. Our handbook restricts employees on the sales floor from wearing facial piercings, visible tattoos, long beards and dreadlocks. However, we’ve heard that new laws prohibit “hairstyle discrimination” and restrict dress codes. Can we still maintain our look?
Via Federal Register notice, OFCCP has officially stated the Agency
will not request, accept, or use Component 2 data, as it does not expect to find significant utility in the data given limited resources and its aggregated nature, but it will continue to receive EEO-1 Component 1 data.
Title VII of the Civil Rights Act requires employers in the healthcare industry to provide a reasonable accommodation to employees’ sincerely held religious beliefs and practices. Common accommodation requests relate to:
Following the most recent Court Order, EEOC has provided the court with a current update as to its compliance with the Court’s Order that it continue to keep the EEO-1 Component 2 pay data reporting portal open. The Court has ordered the portal remain open until at least January 31, 2020 to allow additional filers to submit their reports.
Despite its request to close the pay data reporting portal, Judge Chutkan has ordered EEOC to continue to keep the EEO-1 Component 2 Pay Data Reporting Portal open to allow more filers to submit their pay data. The Order states, despite the acknowledged expense, that EEOC
In the next chapter of the pay data reporting saga, the EEOC has filed a Motion with the court seeking an order “determining that the EEO-1 Component 2 data collection is deemed complete.” The EEOC is reporting that, “as October 8, 2019, 75.9% of eligible filers had submitted Component 2 data.”
To the surprise of no one who’s been following this story, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) announced on September 11, 2019, that it would not renew its request for authorization from the Office of Management and Budget to collect EEO-1 Component 2 pay data after the current authorization expires.
As we previously reported , EEOC has filed notice asking for renewed approval to collect EEO-1 Component 1 race, gender and ethnicity workforce data for the next three years (2019, 2020 & 2021), but is not seeking renewed authority to collect Component 2 pay data and hours worked. To be clear, this filing does not impact the current obligation employers have to submit 2017 and 2018 pay data by September 30, 2019.
On September 11, 2019, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) announced that it would not seek approval from the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) to collect detailed employee compensation data on its Form EEO-1 next year. The current requirement that employers submit compensation data for calendar years 2017 and 2018 by September 30, 2019, remains unchanged.
As previously reported, EEOC is expected to publish tomorrow a Notice of Information Collection regarding EEO-1 Reporting.
In its required status report, filed pursuant to Court Order, EEOC announced it is preparing a Notice of Information Collection – Employer Information Report (EEO-1) to seek authorization from the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for the collection of pay data going forward. As a reminder, OMB approval for the data collection expires September 30, 2019 – the same deadline imposed by the court for the current reporting period for the EEO-1 Component 2 data. Once published in the Federal Register, EEOC states “the public will be invited to submit comments to the Commission.”
By no later than September 30, 2019, employers with 100 or more employees must file EEO-1 Component 2 to report pay data for their workforces in 2017 and 2018. As the deadline approaches, a reminder of the history and requirements of this controversial data collection are in order.
Now that the EEO-1 Component 2 pay data report portal has been open for a month, and with a mere six weeks until the deadline to file your 2017 and 2018 compensation data, it’s time for an update to our June alert on the same topic. You also might want to tune in to our podcast discussion “What Happens If You Don’t File Your EEO-1 Component 2 Compensation Data?,” which ran on a recent episode of HR Works
As scheduled, EEOC and NORC have now provided employers with a way batch upload their EEO-1 Component 2 pay data. Instructions and details are provided on the More Info Page on the NORC EEO-1 Component 2 website. Specifically, the following documents are currently available:
