The EEO-1 Reporting period for 2021 data is open April 12, 2022 – May 17, 2022.
What is an EEO-1 Report?
The Employer Information Report EEO-1 (EEO-1 Report) is an annual compliance survey that certain employers must complete, that is filed with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC). The survey provides a demographic breakdown of the employer’s workforce and requires company employment data broken down by:
The EEO-1 Report is mandated by Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1967 as amended by the Equal Employment Opportunity Act of 1972. The act requires certain employers to report the racial/ethnic and gender composition of their workforce (referred to as component 1 data).
All employers in public and private sectors with 15 or more employees must comply with Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 to be considered an equal opportunity employer. However, just because an employer must comply with Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 does not mean they need to file an EEO-1 report.
Does Your Company Need to File an EEO-1 Report?
The EEOC mandates that the following companies comply with EEO-1 reporting:
All private employers who are:
Subject to Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, as amended, with 100 or more employees.
Subject to Title VII who have fewer than 100 employees if the company is owned or affiliated with another company, or with common ownership, control, or management, and the group legally constitutes a single enterprise employing a total of 100 more employees.
**Excluded private employers: even if 100 or more employees, include State and local governments, public primary and secondary school systems, institutions of higher education, American Indian or Alaska Native tribes, and tax-exempt private membership clubs other than labor organizations.
All federal contractors who:
Are not exempt under 41 CFR 60-1.5;
Have 50 or more employees;
Are prime contractors or first tier subcontractors;
And have a contract, subcontract, or purchase order amounting to $50,000 or more; or serve as depositories of Government funds in any amount; or are financial institutions which are issuing and paying agents for U.S. Savings Bonds and savings notes.
This means, Federal contractors with 1 – 49 employees and other private employers with 1 – 99 employees are not required to file EEO-1 data.
Keep in mind that EEO-1 reporting only applies to company offices physically located within the United States and does not include Puerto Rico, The Virgin Islands, or other American Protectorates. If an employer has offices in the U.S. along with some offices located in other countries, those offices outside the U.S. do not have to report any employee data.
Additionally, a separate EEO-1 report form needs to be submitted for each separate location of a company. For example, your company has offices in Denver, Indianapolis, and Houston, therefore three separate forms will need to be submitted.

Hi, I'm Debra!
I’ve worked with Vida HR for a little over two and a half years, have 11 years of experience in the HR field, and currently hold the position of Training and Compliance Manager. I have a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Psychology from Colorado State University-Pueblo and received my SHRM-CP in 2020. My PI Profile is Controller, which means that I enjoy rules, structure, and problem-solving.
A little about me:
I’m originally from Alabama, but you wouldn’t know it from my lack of accent, and have lived in a total of six states! When I’m not working, I enjoy cooking, gardening, reading, and spending time with my husband, dog (Charlie), and three cats (Fred, Brie, and Gilly).
