Updates to the EEOC's Proposed Equal Pay Data Reporting Requirement
On July 13, 2016, the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission ("EEOC") announced its revised proposed rule on the collection of data from federal contractors and other large employers. The proposed rule was originally published in January of this year and the initial comment period ended on April 1, 2016.

As result of the comments received and a public hearing conducted in March 2016, the EEOC issued the following revisions to the proposed rule:
The effective date for supplying EEO-1 surveys with the additional required information will be pushed back from September 30, 2017 to March 31, 2018.
To simplify reporting requirements, employers may use existing W-2 pay reports, calculated on a calendar year.
Additionally, a new 30-day comment period is in effect, closing on August 15, 2016. CLICK HERE for the revised proposed rule.
What Should Employers Do to Prepare?
Employers should evaluate the impact these proposed additional reporting requirements may have on their business. In addition, employers may wish to proactively audit their pay policies and practices.
