On March 29, 2021, the EEOC announced that the EEO-1 Component Data Collection for 2019 and 2020 is due on July 19, 2021. The collection time period will be open on April 26, 2021. In light of the pandemic, this allows employers 12 weeks to collect the data for the last two years.
WHAT IS EEO-1 REPORTING?
The regulations that accompany Title VII require that all employers with 100 or more employees file the Standard Form 100 on an annual basis.
MANDATORY FOR EMPLOYERS
It is mandatory for employers with 100 or more employees to submit this form.
VOLUNTARY FOR EMPLOYEES
The EEO-1 is voluntary for employees to complete. It is best practice for employers to remind the workforce in writing that the self-identification is not mandatory for the employees to complete. However, employers should also remind the employees that if they choose not to self-identify, then the employer is required to do a visual identification of the employee’s race, ethnicity, and gender.
NOTE: The Standard Form 100 requests information related to gender and race. Prudent employers should consult with counsel regarding reporting non-binary and transitioning employees.
REPORTING PERIOD OPENS APRIL 26, 2021
Covered Employers should commence the process of obtaining the requisite information for 2019 and 2020.
STANDARD 100 FORMS ARE DUE JULY 19, 2021
Covered employers must submit their EEO forms on or before July 19, 2021. Employers should consult with counsel now with any questions or concerns to ensure that they are compliant with the federal law.
