White House Suspends Pay-Data Reporting on Revised EEO-1 Report

The White House Office of Management and Budget (OMB) plans to stay the effective date of the pay-data collection provisions of the revised EEO-1 form in order to review the appropriateness of the revisions under the Paperwork Reduction Act (PRA).
The revised EEO-1 form would have gone into effect March 31, 2018, and would have required employers with 100 or more employees to report W-2 wage information and total hours worked for all employees by race, ethnicity and sex within 12 proposed pay bands.

"Existing EEO-1 obligations have not changed, but employers will not need to report on wages or hours worked," said Nancy Hammer, senior government affairs policy counsel for the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM). "We expect that EEOC will take further actions on this issue."   Click here  to read more.

EEO-1 Report that is normally due each September 30
th  must be submitted and certified by March 31, 2018. To learn more go to:

 Halloween Costume Policies at Work
More then half of those who responded to an informal poll on SHRM's Twitter account say that Halloween costumes are OK -- within reason -- in their workplace.
The spooky October holida y allows some employees to take a break from normal business attire, but can also create a few headaches for human resources professionals. 
Halloween often requires HR to manage office costume parties that still follow  company dress code policies, don't violate office safety guidelines and aren't spoiled by  offensive costumes. With all of the  scary stories of daily HR work out there, at some point HR professionals might wonder if  Halloween is worth celebrating at the office at all.
