The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) has revised its pending rules on pay data reporting requirements for companies with over 100 employees.  EEOC had initially published a proposed new reporting rule back at the beginning of the year, but in light of issues raised at public hearings and through the public comment period (Feb. 1 through April 1, 2016), the Commission rewrote parts of the proposed rule.  The latest proposal, published in the Federal Register yesterday, asks employers for employment data to be reported in twelve distinct pay bands and pushes back the due date for the EEO-1 survey from September 30, 2017 to March, 2018.  As a result, employers required to report will be allowed to use existing W-2 pay reports, calculated on the calendar year.  The rule is open for an additional public comment period expiring August 15, 2016.
