EEO-1 Filing Season Opens: September 30 Deadline

Aug 2 2016 - Reporting Requirements - Gail Cecchettini Whaley

EEO-1 Survey Filing Season

The EEO-1 Survey Deadline is September 30, 2016.

The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) announced that the mailing of notification letters for the 2016 EEO-1 survey is complete.

Federal law requires all private employers with 100 or more employees to file the federal EEO-1 report annually. In addition, all federal government contractors and subcontractors with a contract of $50,000 or more and with 50 or more employees must file EEO-1 reports.

The survey requires company employment data to be categorized by race/ethnicity, gender and job category. The filing deadline is September 30, 2016.

The EEOC established an EEO-1 survey website that contains EEO-1 reference documents, including the sample form, instructions, Q&As, Fact Sheet and EEO-1 Job Classification Guide. The website also discusses important changes for the 2016 EEO-1 survey.

Contact the EEO-1 Joint Reporting Committee at 866-392-4647 (toll-free) or via e-mail at if your business:

  • Meets the criteria above but does not receive a 2016 EEO-1 notification letter by August 15, 2016;
  • Filed an EEO-1 report in 2015 but did not receive the 2016 EEO-1 notification letter; or
  • Has any questions about the EEO-1 survey.

Also, don’t forget that the EEOC is considering revising EEO-1 reporting requirements to require covered employers to also report pay data on the EEO-1 report, including aggregate information from employee W-2s that shows hours worked and earnings data. The comment period for this proposal closes on August 15.
