EEO-1 Reporting will Include Pay Data - Due September 30, 2019

Updated: Apr 10, 2019

Yesterday, April 3rd, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) revealed their decision on whether employers will turn over pay data with the 2018 EEO-1 reports by stating it will require employers to turn over 2018 pay data with the EEO-1 filing.

Employers will now be faced with an increased burden in pulling pay data along with standard EEO-1 reporting data. On a positive note, it appears that the EEOC will give employers until September 30, 2019 to file the data.

Employers will be turning over pay data with their 2018 EEO-1 filings

Here is a complete breakdown of the developments with EEO-1 Reporting over the last month:

  • On March 6th a federal judge ruled that pay data must be part of EEO Reporting going forward.

  • Employers (and us compliance folks) began wondering if that meant it would have to be included in the EEO-1 Reports due May 31, 2019.

  • On March 18th the EEOC opened up the reporting for this period, and made one piece of information clear – the workforce data must be from one payroll period between 10/1/2018 and 12/31/2018.

  • On March 19th a federal judge ruled and gave the EEOC a deadline of April 3, 2019 to make a decision on whether or not pay data will be part of the EEO-1 filing due May 31, 2019.

  • On April 3, the EEOC submitted their response and told a federal judge that it will require employers to turn over 2018 pay data.

  • It appears that the deadline for filing the 2018 pay data will be September 30, 2019.
