The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) affirmed employers must report pay data, broken down by race, sex and ethnicity, from BOTH 2017 and 2018 payrolls. The pay data reports are due Sept. 30.

The portal will be available to employers by mid-July, with training available prior to that date

Employers still must submit their 2018 data for “Component 1” (non-pay inclusive) of the EEO-1 form by May 31.

Component 1 asks for the number of employees who work for the business by job category, race, ethnicity and sex. Component 2 data—which includes hours worked and pay information from employees’ W-2 forms by race, ethnicity.

Businesses with at least 100 employees and federal contractors with at least 50 employees and a contract with the federal government of $50,000 or more must file the EEO-1 form. The EEOC uses information about the number of women and minorities companies employ to support civil rights enforcement and analyze employment patterns, according to the agency.

The revised EEO-1 form will require employers to report wage information from Box 1 of the W-2 form and total hours worked for all employees by race, ethnicity and sex within 12 proposed pay bands.

InTANDEM HR complies with all EEO requirements and will submit the EEO-1 as required on our client’s behalf. We are working with our HRIS system to ensure a smooth upload.
