Expanded EEOC pay data reporting postponed indefinitely

Expanded EEOC pay data reporting postponed indefinitely

As dealer members know from a WANADA Special Bulletin sent September 1, the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) has indefinitely postponed expanded reporting on pay data on the EEO-1 form. All dealerships with 100 or more employees in the company already send the older version of the form annually to the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC).

OMB ordered a review and then an immediate stay of the EEO-1 form published last year. The action is partly the result of concerns raised by employer organizations, including NADA. The 2016 EEO-1 form would have required the reporting of data on wage and hours worked and the range of compensation paid to employees by demographic group.

In announcing the stay, OMB said it was concerned that –some aspects of the revised collection of information lack practical utility, are unnecessarily burdensome, and do not adequately address privacy and confidentiality issues.”

Covered employers should now use the pre-September 2016 EEO-1 form when submitting 2017 data by the March 31, 2018, deadline. For more information on the EEO-1, contact NADA Regulatory Affairs at regulatoryaffairs@nada.org.
