EEO-1 REPORTS RACE AND GENDER PAY DATA COLLECTION OVER
The efforts of the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) to collect information on race and gender pay data are finally over. The Trump Administration had blocked the collection of the race and gender pay data in 2017, but a federal district court judge in the District of Columbia ordered the Obama-era pay reporting requirement to continue. The judge's order is still being appealed, but in the meantime the judge has finally deemed the collection complete, with about 89% of all eligible employers having turned over the pay data.
No announcement has been made as to how the pay data already collected will be used, and there are no current plans to do race and gender pay data collection in this manner in the future. However, the matter is still being considered from a regulatory standpoint and conditions could change, of course, with a different administration.
