EEOC Takes Action Against Employers for Reporting Noncompliance

The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) has taken legal action against 15 employers for failing to meet mandatory federal reporting requirements. These lawsuits highlight the importance of submitting the Employer Information Report (EEO-1) Component 1 data, which many companies have neglected to file.

According to the EEOC, these employers have repeatedly failed to submit the required EEO-1 Component 1 data reports for previous years, specifically for the 2021 and 2022 reporting periods. This data is crucial as it includes detailed information on race, ethnicity, and gender across various job categories, helping the EEOC with enforcement, analytics, research, and employer self-assessment.

Who Must File?

Employers with 100 or more employees and federal contractors with 50 or more employees are mandated to file an EEO-1 report with the EEOC. The report compiles workforce demographic data based on a “workforce snapshot period” between October 1 and December 31. This data collection is essential for the EEOC to monitor and promote workplace diversity and equal opportunity.

Upcoming Deadline for 2023 EEO-1 Data

The deadline for submitting the 2023 EEO-1 Component 1 data is fast approaching, with submissions due by June 4. Employers who fall under the reporting requirements should ensure they file their reports on time to avoid potential legal action. The EEOC provides a filer help desk to assist employers with the submission process. Additionally, the 2023 instruction booklet and file upload specifications are available to guide employers through the requirements.

This move by the EEOC underscores the critical nature of compliance with federal reporting laws. By maintaining accurate and timely reporting, employers not only adhere to legal standards but also contribute to the broader goal of workplace equality and transparency.

For further assistance and detailed instructions, employers can refer to the EEOC’s resources or contact their help desk to ensure compliance with the upcoming deadline.
