EEO-1 Filing Deadline Extended

The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) just announced that due to the partial lapse in appropriations, the opening of the Employer Information Report (EEO-1) has been postponed until early March 2019. The EEO-1 filing deadline has been extended to May 31, 2019.

Filing the annual EEO-1 is mandatory for all employers in the private sector with 100 or more employees, and for federal contractors and subcontractors with 50 or more employees.

The EEO-1 Report provides the EEOC with information about the size, location, industry, and race, gender and occupation demographics of an employer’s workforce.  It also is used by the Department of Labor in selecting federal contractors for compliance audits.

The EEOC has stated that additional details and instructions for the 2018 EEO-1 filers will be released in the coming weeks.  We will keep you updated as to any future developments.

Please contact Gary Chamberlin or Kelley Stoppels if you have questions about this or any other EEO-1 Report or OFCCP issue.
