After several significant delays, prompted by court challenges, regulatory delays and other issues, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) this week launched its dedicated web-based portal for businesses that employ 100 or more individuals to begin providing expanded pay and hours worked data for calendar years 2017 and 2018.  This data, delineated by race, ethnicity and gender, must be provided by the estimated 60,000 employers affected by September 30, 2019 as required by a recently issued federal court order. The EEO-1 form was updated by the agency under President Barack Obama, but halted by the Office of Management & Budget under President Trump, prompting the court challenge back in 2017.
