What is the EEO-1 Form?
The EEO-1 form is a compliance survey that requires employers to categorize employment data by race/ethnicity, gender and job category.
Who is Required to File the Updated EEO-1 Report?
Private employers, including federal contractors with 100 or more employees, are required to submit pay data (also known as Component 2 data).
What are the New EEOC Compliance Requirements?
The current EEO-1 Report requires employers to categorize company employment data by race, ethnicity, gender and job category. With the new ruling, employers are required to report wage information from Box 1 of the W-2 form and total hours worked for all employees by race, gender and ethnicity within 12 proposed pay bands.
What Does This Mean for Your Organization?
The amount of additional data employers will be required to provide is very significant. If employers are unable to generate compensation, hours worked and pay bands into one report, it will create additional administrative work and could result in costly reporting errors.
