QUESTION

What is an “EEO-1 Report” and does it apply to my company?

ANSWER

The EEO-1 Report is a mandatory annual survey required by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC). All private employers with 100 or more employees, and all federal government contractors or first-tier subcontractors with 50 or more employees and a contract or subcontract of $50,000 or more must file the EEO-1 Report. The filing of the EEO-1 Report is mandated by federal law. The EEO-1 Report contains employment data about your company based on race/ethnicity, gender and job categories. It is accessed by researchers, private attorneys, human resources staff as well as the EEOC to enforce Title VII of the Civil Rights Act. In late July, the 2013 EEO-1 Notification Letters were mailed to all employers who had filed previous EEO-1 Reports. The letters included new Login IDs and Passwords because the EEOC prefers that employers submit the reports electronically. If your company has recently grown, been awarded new contracts that render you eligible for filing an EEO-1 Report, you should log onto the EEOC’s website to obtain more information. The deadline to file the EEO-1 Reports is September 30, 2013.
