Just over one week ago the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) resurrected a mandatory filing for qualified employers of 2019 and 2020 workplace diversity data (EEO-1 Component 1). Generally speaking, the dictate applies to employers with at least 100 employees as well as federal contractors with 50 or more employees. You may recall that the pay data mandate was amended under President Trump in that specific pay data demographic information was no longer required. Furthermore, last year – in deference to the coronavirus challenges the business community was facing – the 2019 and 2020 reports were postponed until March of this year. Now, EEOC under President Joe Biden has opened a reporting window between April 26, 2021 and July 19, 2021 for the 2019 and 2020 reports to be submitted. Aside from the federal EEO-1 filing requirement, some states – currently California and Illinois, with others likely to follow suit – have also enacted pay equity filing requirements, so check with your employment counsel to ensure you are up-to-date on your individual state requirements.
