The courts aren’t the only ones reversing Obama-era mandates, as just this week the White House Office of Management and Budget (OMB) ordered EEOC (Equal Employment Opportunity Commission) to cease the pay data collection initiated under the prior administration. Last fall, the Obama administration amended the EEO-1 Form required of private employers with more than 100 employees to include additional salary and hours worked information on all employees delineated by race and gender. The new requirement was largely viewed as burdensome for many businesses due to the work involved in determining, collecting and reporting the additional categories. In the wake of receiving the OMB memo implementing the freeze and regulatory review, EEOC Chairwoman Victoria Lipnic announced in a statement that the earlier approved EEO-1 should be used by affected employers to report the required data by the previously set filing date of March 2018.
