September 30 is the new deadline for employers who submit annual EEO-1 reports to the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, to report additional employee pay data for 2018. This deadline was revealed in a federal court submission, and the judge in the case will need to approve it.
Employers with 100 or more employees – and federal contractors with 50 or more employees and a contract or subcontract of $50,000 or more – are required to submit employment demographic data by race/ethnicity, gender, and job categories. This set of data is still due May 31.
Under the Obama administration, the OMB sought to add substantially more data, about compensation and hours worked, known as “Component 2”. This requirement was removed by the Trump administration’s OMB, which argued that it was burdensome and posed privacy concerns, but the court has overturned that. The new due date for that larger set of data is now subject to the court’s approval.
