WASHINGTON – After delaying the opening of the 2019 EEO-1 Component 1 and the 2020 EEO-3 and 2020 EEO-5 Data Collections on May 8, 2020 in light of the COVID-19 public health emergency, the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) announced today that the collections will open in 2021.

The EEOC will open four data collections in 2021, including the 2019 and 2020 EEO-1 Component 1 Data Collection as well as the 2020 EEO-3, 2021 EEO-4, and 2020 EEO-5 Data Collections. The collections are scheduled to open in the following months:

April 2021:                 2019 and 2020 EEO-1 Component 1 Data Collection (Private Sector Employers)

July 2021:                  2020 EEO-5 Data Collection (Public Elementary/Secondary School Districts)

August 2021:             2020 EEO-3 Data Collection (Local Referral Unions)

October 2021:            2021 EEO-4 Data Collection (State/Local Governments)

EEO (equal employment opportunity) filers should begin preparing to submit data in anticipation of these openings. The precise opening dates of the collections, as well as the new submission deadline dates, will be announced by posting a notice on the EEOC’s home page at www.eeoc.gov as well as on the new dedicated website for the agency’s EEO data collections at https://EEOCdata.org. As in previ­ous years, a notification letter will also be sent to eligible filers.

The EEO reports collect data from employers in different sectors of the workforce. The EEOC was planning to open the following EEO data collections in 2020: the 2019 EEO-1 Component 1 (Employer Information Report); the 2020 EEO-3 (Local Report); and the 2020 EEO-5 (Elementary-Secondary Staff Information Report). Recognizing the impact that the public health emergency was having on workplaces across America and the challenges that both employers and employees were facing, the EEOC delayed the collections until 2021 to allow EEO filers to be better positioned to provide accurate, valid and reliable data in a timely manner.

EEO filers can visit https://EEOCdata.org  for more information regarding updates on the data collections. When the collections open, resources to assist filers with their submissions will be available online at https://EEOCdata.org. The EEOC Filer Support Team will also be available to respond to filer inquiries and to provide additional filling assistance.

The EEOC advances opportunity in the workplace by enforcing federal laws prohibiting employ­ment discrimination. More information is available at www.eeoc.gov.
