March 31 is the deadline employers must meet for submitting EEO-1 reports to the Joint Reporting Committee (JRC). The JRC represents the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) and the Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) for purposes of collecting employers’ EEO-1 reports.
This year’s filing period was extended after the EEOC attempted to require a compensation analysis as part of the EEO-1 report. The additional data requirements have been put on hold pending a comprehensive review.
Employers with 100 or more employees and employers with at least 50 employees and $50,000 per year in government contracts must file an EEO-1 report each year. The report must include race/ethnicity, gender, and job category information for all employees—full-time and part-time—during the lookback period, which is the last quarter of 2017 for this year’s report.
If a covered employer has multiple locations, it must file a report for each facility with 50 or more employees. Furthermore, a report must be filed for the company’s headquarters, regardless of how many employees work there. Also, a consolidated report must be filed for all locations with 50 or more employees. Finally, employers with multiple locations must include in the report the address of any locations with fewer than 50 employees.
