Starting in February, the EEO-1 Joint Reporting Committee’s website began accepting online submissions of demographic data from qualifying companies. Earlier, qualifying entities were mailed notices explaining the reporting schedule and instructions. The 2018 EEO-1 reports (for data in the last quarter of 2017) must be filed by March 31, 2018.
Who is covered? Private employers with 100 or more employees and federal government contractors or primary subcontractors with 50 or more employees and a contract/subcontract of $50,000 or more are required to file the EEO-1 report by federal law. Employers provide employment data by race/ethnicity, gender, and job categories. The data is used to develop affirmative action plans and to guide enforcement decisions regarding Title VII of the Civil Rights Act. Employers with questions about reporting, or if your company reported last year, but did not receive a notification letter from the Joint Reporting Committee should call 1-877-392-4647 (toll-free) or e-mail e1[email protected]. More information is available on the EEO-1 Joint Reporting Committee website.
