The US Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) has released a new EEO-1 report.  The new report won’t be due until March 31, 2018 which is great news! This will give employers 18 months to prepare. The Small Business Fact Sheet is a great resource if you have any questions about the new changes.  We have summarized what those minimal changes are below:

New Changes:

  • Pay Data will now be included if you have 100 or more employees.
  • The first new EEO-1 report will be due on 3/31/2018 and due on March 31st going forward.
  • Employers will have 18 months to prepare for this between 2016 and 2017. There will not be a report due in 2017.

What will be required on the new EEO-1 form?

  • The 10 EEO-1 job categories still stay the same and they are:
    • (1) Executive/Senior Level Officials and Managers;
      (2) First/Mid Level Officials and Managers;
      (3) Professionals;

      (11) $163,800 – $207,999; and
      (12) $208,000 and over.

How does the EEOC use the EEO-1 Report?

  • Uses statistical EEO-1 data early in its investigations.  The EEOC receives about 1,000 cases every year.
  • Periodically publishes aggregated EEO-1 data and industry reports.
  • The OFCCP will use the EEO-1 report to make sure federal contractors and subcontractors are in compliance under the E.O 11246.

While these are minimal changes, it may have a big impact in your payroll department.  Now would be the time to start brainstorming with your payroll and IT team on how to extract the new data the EEOC will be requiring.
