EEOC Pushes Back EEO-1 Data Collection to Fall for 2022
The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) announces it will delay the collection of data for the 2022 Employer Information Report (EEO-1) Component 1. Instead of starting in mid-July, it will take place in the fall. This change is necessary as the EEOC completes a mandatory renewal process for the data collection, which is required every three years by the Office of Management and Budget.
Companies with 100 or more employees, as well as federal contractors with 50 or more employees, are required to submit an EEO-1 report to the EEOC. This report includes information about the employees’ race, ethnicity, and gender based on their job category. Employers determine the number of employees for the report between October 1 and December 31. Even if companies hire a third-party organization to prepare and submit their EEO-1 reports, they are still responsible for making sure the reports are filed correctly.
The EEOC will provide updates on the opening date of the data collection and the Filer Support Message Center on their website.
