Recently, the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (“EEOC”) announced that it is extending indefinitely the September 30, 2019 deadline for eligible employers to submit their EEO-1 Component 2 reports. For more information on the Component 2 requirement, click here.
In a status report filed on September 27, 2019, as part of litigation surrounding the compensation data requirement, the EEOC stated that it will continue to accept employer Component 2 reports so long as a federal district court’s order is in effect. The order requires that the EEOC receive at least 72% of the filings that the EEOC, on average, collects for its EEO-1 report. As of September 6, only 13.4% of eligible employers had filed the EEO-1 Component 2 information. Employers may want to consider submitting Component 2 as soon as they can do so.
