As you prepare for year-end, don’t forget that the EEO-1 Report for 2018 will be due not long after 2019 begins.
The EEO-1 Report is an annual filing that must be completed by private sector employers with 100+ employees, or government contractors or first-tier subcontractors (including financial institutions) with 50+ employees and at least one $50,000 contract. It provides the Joint Reporting Committee (JRC), a government entity that includes the Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) and the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), with data on the race and gender of employees by EEO-1 category, by establishment. EEO-1 categories range from Executive and Senior Level Managers to Service Workers.
While the filing period for the 2018 report has not yet opened, this will be the second year the report is due by March 31. The report had been due, since its inception, in September of the current year. This changed a few years ago for a variety of reasons, and there have been no indications it will return to being due in September.
Therefore, employers should prepare to gather data for the 2018 EEO-1 by choosing a pay period from October, November, or December of 2018, and then running the required data for each establishment. Once the reporting website is open, HR Source will make sure to alert our members.
