The EEO-1 is the federally-mandated survey of company employment data categorized by race/ethnicity, gender and job category Companies with 100 or more employees must file it each year. Certain federal contractors with 50 or more employees must file the EEO-1 too.
Now, some of you may be thinking, “Eric, did the recent government shutdown impact when our company needs to file the EEO-1?”
Indeed it did.
When must covered employers file the EEO-1?
Here’s the latest from the EEOC:
Due to the recent partial lapse in appropriations, the opening of the EEO-1 has been postponed until early March 2019. The deadline to submit EEO-1 data will be extended to May 31, 2019. Details and instructions for the 2018 EEO-1 Report filers will be forthcoming. Please continue to visit the EEO-1 website in the coming weeks for schedule updates.
