Employers Must File EEO-1 Reports With The EEOC By September 30, 2013


The deadline for filing EEO-1 reports with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) is September 30, 2013. The EEO-1 report is a survey of a company’s employment data categorized by race/ethnicity, gender and job category. The EEOC uses EEO-1 data to support civil rights enforcement and analyze employment patterns, such as the representation of female and minority workers within companies, industries or regions. The Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) also uses EEO-1 data to determine which companies to select for systemic-discrimination and compliance reviews. With certain exceptions, the EEO-1 reporting obligation applies to companies with 100 or more employees or a company with fewer than 100 employees, if the company is owned by, or corporately affiliated with, another company and the entire enterprise employs 100 or more employees. The reporting obligation also applies to certain federal government contractors with 50 or more employees and a contract amounting to $50,000 or more. Companies can file EEO-1 reports electronically at the EEOC’s website. If you are filing for the first time, click under "first-time users" to register. EEO-1 Reports should be kept for at least one-year after filing.
