Deadline Extended and Requirements Expanded for EEO-1 Reporting

The deadline for EEO-1 reporting has been moved from September 30 to March 31, 2018. Companies with more than 100 employees (including federal contractors) will now be required to report summary pay data and hours worked for their employees, in addition to the usual demographic data they report.

The first EEO-1 report is due by March 31, 2018, for any pay period between October 1 and December 31, 2017. In addition to the standard gender and race/ethnicity information collected for the 10 EEO categories, the report now includes employee W-2 earnings and hours worked. Collection of this new data is intended to assist the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) in identifying possible pay discrimination and to help employers promote equal pay in their workplace.
