The EEO-1 report is usually due by March 31 of every year. However, the EEOC delayed the March 31, 2020 filing in light of the COVID-19 pandemic. On March 29, 2021, the EEOC announced that the 2019 and 2020 Component 1 data collection would open on Monday, April 26, 2021. This means that after one year with no filings, EEO-1 filers will need to submit data for the last two years and both the
2019 and 2020 EEO-1 reports are due by July 19, 2021.
All private employers with at least 100 employees are required to file an EEO-1 report annually and all federal government contractors (and subcontractors) with 50 or more employees and at least $50,000 in contracts are also required to file an EEO-1 report annually. The EEOC will collect EEO-1 data on the gender and race/ethnicity make-up of the workforce for 2019 and 2020, from a workforce snapshot period selected by the company, from any pay period from October through December in 2019 and 2020. (The same snapshot period does not need to be used for both years.)
Employers can visit the EEOC’s “”Support Center” web page for more information and updates on Component 1, and for resources to help with the submissions. Employers will be required to file and certify their 2019 EEO-1 reports before filing and certifying their 2020 EEO-1 reports.
If you have any questions regarding the filing requirements please reach out to PMP for more information.
