Reporting Deadline for EEO-1 Coming up Fast

After a brief hiatus due to the COVID-19 health emergency, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) is reminding covered businesses that they must report EEO-1 Component 1 data for both 2019 and 2020 by July 19, 2021. The portal for data collection and submission will open April 26, 2021.  

The duty to report applies to businesses with 100 or more employees in their workforce (and federal contractors with 50 or more employees) and requires a demographic breakdown of the workforce by race and gender. Because many employers had wide fluctuations in their workforce during the pandemic this may be a more-than-usually daunting task. It also remains to be seen how these setbacks and surges will affect the numbers. There is a longstanding presumption that certain statistical disparities suggest discrimination on the basis of race or sex. Some employers may be surprised by the results for these two very unusual years.
