2023 EEO-1 Reporting
After many delays, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission announced that the 2022 EEO-1 Reporting will open on October 31st, 2023. The deadline to file the EEO-1 report is Tuesday, December 5th, 2023.
What is the 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.
Do I 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.
