EEO1 Form

Each year by September 30th, private employers (with at least 100 employees) and most federal contractors are required to file the Employer Information Report EEO-1 with the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission’s EEO-1 Joint Reporting Committee. This compliance survey is mandated by federal statute and regulations, requiring company employment data to be categorized by race/ethnicity, gender and job category. For 2017, however, we will see some major additions to the report.


*Employers must now provide data on aggregate employee pay and hours worked.

*No individual pay information will be reported. Instead, employers will tally and report the total number of employees in the 12 pay bands provided by the EEOC for each job category.

*For non-exempt employees, employers will report the number of hours worked under the FLSA for the year.

*For FLSA exempt employees, employers are not required to start tracking actual hours worked, but are given a formula for full-time and part-time employees to calculate hours worked.

*The filing date shifted from September 30 to March 31 of each year.


*The 2017 report is not due until March 2018. However, the 2017 report will rely on W-2 data, which covers pay for the entire year, starting with January 1, 2017.
