UPDATE: Your company was just given two more months to submit and certify your EEO-1 reports. The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) has extended the deadline yet again. Reports for 2019 and 2020 are now due Monday, Oct. 25. The EEOC says this will be the final extension.
Employers, you must now submit your EEO-1 pay data reporting to the feds. The reporting window runs from April 26 to July 19, says the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission.
Reporting was postponed last year due to the coronavirus pandemic.
The good news? That’s two weeks longer than you usually get.
The bad news? Your company has to do double the reporting. Employers have to submit both 2019 and 2020 pay data in that timeframe.
Just Component 1 this time for pay data reporting
No time-consuming Component 2 this time! You only have to do Component 1 pay data reporting for each year. Component 1 collects data from employers with 100 or more employees (50 or more if you’re a fed contractor).
You’ll have two ways to submit this data:
- an online form, where you enter data into a secure web portal directly into the online filing system, and
- a data file upload, which won’t be available until late May.
The feds say they will start sending employers emails letting them know the pay data reporting window has opened.
Note: Some specific industries use a different form and have different deadlines. They are:
- July 2021: 2020 EEO-5 (Public Elementary/Secondary School Districts)
- August 2021: 2020 EEO-3 (Local Referral Unions), and
- October 2021: 2021 EEO-4 (State/Local Governments).
