On January 12, 2021, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) announced the upcoming opening of four EEO data collections: the 2019 and 2020 EEO-1, the 2020 EEO-3, the 2021 EEO-4 and the 2020 EEO-5. The EEOC collects workplace data from public and private employers meeting certain thresholds annually, but had previously delayed collection of 2019 and 2020 data because of the pandemic.

The 2021 data collections are scheduled to open in the following months:

  • April 2021: The EEOC will open the 2019 and 2020 EEO-1 data collection for private sector employers.
  • July 2021: The EEOC will open the 2020 EEO-5 data collection for public elementary and secondary school districts.
  • August 2021: The EEOC will open the 2020 EE0-3 data collection for local referral unions.
  • October 2021: 2021 EEOC will open the 2021-4 data collection for state/local governments.

Although the precise dates of the data collection are not yet known, employers should begin preparing their data submissions for the anticipated openings. The exact opening dates and the submission deadline dates will be announced on the EEOC’s home page and the agency’s EEO data collection website, and the EEOC will also send a notification letter to eligible filers. Contact us if you have any questions regarding EEO data collection submissions or need assistance preparing your submission.
