On August 29, 2017, the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) issued a memorandum informing the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) of OMB's decision to initiate a review and immediate stay of the EEOC's collection of aggregate W-2 pay and hours-worked data on the EEO-1 report. At the same time, OMB expressly permitted the EEOC to continue collecting EEO-1 data identifying the race, ethnicity, and sex of workers, by job categories.
As a result of the stay on the 2017 EEO-1 reporting cycle, the EEO-1 will not collect data about pay and hours worked from employers. But, for the 2017 EEO-1 reporting cycle, the EEO-1 will collect data on the race, ethnicity, and sex of workers, by job category, from private employers with 100 employees or more and federal contractors with 50 employees or more and $50,000 in contract(s).
In order for companies to be in compliance with Federal reporting regulations all employers in the private sector with 100 or more employees, and some federal contractors with 50 or more employees, must annually file the EEO-1 Report, with the Joint Reporting Committee (a joint committee consisting of the EEOC and the OFCCP) by September 30. The current EEO-1 Report requires covered private sector employers to provide workforce profiles by race, ethnicity, sex, and job category. This webinar will help employers to avoid costly and potentially damaging litigation.
