Reminder to Submit Updated EEO-1 Data by Sept. 30 if Required

In light of a federal judge’s ruling in April that all employers with 100 or more employees must provide the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) with information on how they compensated their employees in 2017 and 2018, as it relates to their employees’ race, sex, and ethnicity, dealers who employ 100 or more people must provide this data to the EEOC by the end of the month.

Last month, the EEOC opened their online filing system for large employers to provide their demographic data electronically. The ruling requires those employers to submit updates on EEO-1 Component 2 data, which covers employees’ compensation and hours worked, broken down into the same race, gender, and ethnic data points required in EEO-1 Component 1.

An EEOC helpdesk for dealers with questions about the demographic data they are required to submit is open every Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. ET. Dealers can contact the helpdesk at 877-324-6214 during those hours, or email EEOCcompdata@norc.org to request more information.

While the Trump administration has appealed the April ruling in the District of Columbia, the appeal will almost certainly not be heard before the standing deadline his already passed, making it critical for employers to comply with the court order.
