Employers now have two additional months to file their EEO-1 report. As a result of the federal government shut down, the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) has extended the deadline. Employers must file EEO-1 forms for 2018 by May 31, 2019 rather than the usual March 31 due date.
Private employers that have at least 100 employees are required to file EEO-1 survey annually with the EEOC. Federal government contractors and first-tier subcontractors with 50 or more employees and at least $50,000 in contracts must file as well. The EEO-1 Report is a compliance survey mandated by federal statute and regulations. The survey requires company employment data to be categorized by race/ethnicity, gender and job category. A sample copy of the EEO-1 form and instructions are available here. The EEOC represents that it uses the data to support civil rights enforcement and to analyze employment patterns, such as the representation of women and minorities within companies, industries or regions.
