The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) recently announced the upcoming opening of four EEO data collections. The agency collects workplace data from public and private employers meeting certain thresholds annually but had previously delayed collection of the 2019 and 2020 data because of the pandemic.
When Submissions Begin
The 2021 data collections are scheduled to open in the following months:
April 2021. The EEOC will open the 2019 and 2020 EEO-1 data collection for private-sector employers.
July. The agency will open the 2020 EEO-5 data collection for public elementary and secondary school districts.
August. The agency will open the 2020 EE0-3 data collection for local referral unions.
October. The agency will open the 2021 EEO-4 data collection for state and local governments.
Although the precise dates of the data collection aren’t yet known, you should begin preparing your data submissions for the anticipated openings. The exact opening dates and the submission deadlines will be announced on the EEOC’s home page and the agency’s EEO data collection website, and the agency also will send a notification letter to eligible filers.
If you have questions about the EEO data collections or need assistance preparing your submission, contact Faegre Drinker attorneys Kristin Pierre Jones or Renee C. Manson. You can reach them at email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org.
