On March 18, 2019, the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) opened its EEO-1 online reporting portal(link is external) for the 2018 survey. The EEO-1 is an annual survey that requires all private employers with 100 or more employees and federal government contractors or first-tier subcontractors with 50 or more employees and a federal contract, subcontract or purchase order amounting to $50,000 or more to file the EEO-1 report. The traditional EEO-1 report (“Component 1”) requires employers to tally employment data by race/ethnicity, gender and job categories. “Component 2” of the EEO-1 report requires employers to query their databases for W-2 pay data and FLSA hours worked information, even though individual pay data is not actually reported to the EEOC. The filing of the EEO-1 report is not voluntary and is required by federal law.
