August 23, 2021: New EEO-1 Filing Deadline

An EEO-1 Report must be submitted by all private sector employers with at least 100 employees, federal contractors with 50 or more employees, and a comparable report by certain types of public employers.  Now known as EEO-1 Component 1, this data submission has been required for over 50 years.

Earlier this year, the EEOC had stated that private sector employers would be required to submit their workforce data starting in April 2021. Since employers (and the EEOC) were overwhelmed by the impact of the COVID-19 public health emergency, there was no EEO-1 filing for 2019 data.  Because covered employers were given a pass last year, this year employers must submit workforce data for both 2019 and 2020.

The EEOC recently made a further announcement regarding the timing for filing EEO-1 reports.  The EEOC stated:

“The deadline to submit and certify 2019 and 2020 EEO-1 Component 1 data HAS BEEN CHANGED.  The new filing deadline is NOW Monday, August 23, 2021. ”
