On October 31, 2023, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) announced that the portal for submitting 2022 EEO-1 data is now open. This annual requirement ensures that employers with 100 or more employees, or federal contractors with 50 or more employees, report their workforce demographics. The deadline to submit EEO-1 reports is December 5, 2023.
Who Must File?
The EEO-1 Component 1 report is a mandatory filing required of:
- All private sector employers with 100 or more employees, and
- Federal contractors and subcontractors with 50 or more employees meeting certain criteria.
Employer Action Items
Employers who meet the EEO-1 reporting requirements should visit the EEO-1 Component 1 website for the latest filing updates. You can also find the Instruction Booklet, FAQ’s and a Filer Support Center for additional guidance and support.
Employers should start submitting their 2022 EEO-1 Component 1 data through the portal and ensure everything is completed by the December 5, 2023 deadline.
Changes for Multi-Establishment Employers
The biggest change for 2022 EEO-1 data collection is that multi-establishment employers (those with more than one location) will no longer be required to file separate “types” of reports (e.g., “Type 4” or “Type 8”) based on the size of each of their non-headquarters locations. Instead, they’ll use the new “Establishment-Level Report” to report data for each of their non-headquarters locations, regardless of headcount.
Additionally, the Consolidated Report will now auto-generate and auto-populate with data from the Headquarters Report and each Establishment-Level report. However, employers are still responsible for ensuring that the data in that report, including the total employee count, is accurate. Be sure to comb through the data before submitting.
