e-Alert: EEOC Extends EEO-1 Deadline for 2021 Data Submissions

By June 9, 2022No Comments


The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) announced that employers will now have extra time to submit their 2021 EEO-1 workforce data as the deadline has been extended to June 21, 2022.


Under the Title VII of the Civil Rights Act, the EEO-1 is usually due by March 31 of each year. The EEOC portal officially opened on April 12, 2022, with a deadline of May 17, 2022, for completing submissions for 2021 workforce data. The deadline has been extended until Tuesday, June 21, 2022. After June 21, 2022, no 2021 EEO-1 Reports will be accepted by the EEOC, and eligible filers will be out of compliance with their mandatory 2021 EEO-1 filing obligation.

Important Note: Employers that have already filed their 2021 EEO-1 data may continue to receive notifications of “Failure to File” based on a current glitch in the EEO-1 portal. We recommend that employers log into their EEO-1 filing portal to retain the proof of the certification date for their records.

Employer Next Steps

  • For up-to-date information regarding EEO Reports, visit the EEOC website.
  • Eligible filers who have not yet filed should begin submitting 2021 EEO-1 data in the portal and ensure they complete their submissions by June 21, 2022.
  • If you are interested in outsourcing the preparation and submission of your company’s EEO-1 data, please email us.
