EEO-1 Pay Data Requirement May Be Back
By Jennifer Lippi, J.D., SPHR, PHRca
Generally, each year employers with 100 of more employees, and federal contractors with 50 or more employees, are required to file the EEO-1 report, providing the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (“EEOC”) with data on the number of employees, their distribution by legal entity and location, and their demographic characteristics.
The EEOC under the Obama Administration announced that starting in March of 2018, it would collect employee pay data on a revised EEO-1 report. A few months later, the EEOC under the Trump Administration announced an indefinite stay of the additional pay data reporting requirements. However, as the result of a new court decision,the EEOC could begin requiring pay data on future EEO-1 forms, although much uncertainty still remains.
