New EEO-1 Form Suspended by OMB

Thursday, September 14, 2017

In 2016 the EEOC unveiled its proposed revisions to the Employer Information Report EEO-1. The EEO-1 has historically directed federal contractors and employers with 100 or more employees to report annually the number of individuals that they employ by job category, race, ethnicity and gender in 10 different job groupings. The EEOC’s proposed EEO-1 revisions aimed to expand the information collected to include pay data and working hours to help the EEOC discover potential discrimination in employment and pay equity.  The EEOC finalized its new EEO-1 in September 2016, and the additional information was to be provided by employers by the next reporting deadline in March 2018.  

On August 29, 2017, the Administrator at the OMB’s Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs issued a memorandum to the EEOC which stated that in accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act (PRA) and its regulations the OMB was initiating a review and immediate stay of the effectiveness of those aspects of the EEO-1 form that were revised on September 29, 2016. Please note that employers are still obligated to provide the information required by the previous version of the EEO-1 survey.  Employers are required to continue tracking the information required by the previous version of the EEO-1 Form. Employers have until March 31, 2018 to submit this 2017 data.
