REMINDER: File Your EEO-1 Report

8/3/2012

Are you one of the following?
 
  • A private employer subject to Title VII of the 1964 Civil Rights Act who has 100 or more employees
  • A private employer subject to Title VII of the 1964 Civil Rights Act who has fewer than 100 employees, but is owned by or corporately affiliated with another company and the entire enterprise has a total of 100 or more employees
  • A federal contractor with 50 or more employees who has a “government contract, subcontract or purchase order amounting to $50,000 or more”

If you are, then you must file Form EEO-1 with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC). The deadline for filing the Form is September 30, 2012.

Generally speaking, Form EEO-1 is used to gather data on the race, ethnicity and gender of an employer's workforce. The EEOC uses the data it collects to support civil rights enforcement and to analyze employment patterns within companies, industries and regions. If you are a federal contractor, then the Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs will use the data to select facilities for compliance reviews. Facilities with data that shows systemic discrimination are at greatest risk for a compliance review. Submitting employers are allowed to use employee data from any pay period from July through September of the current survey year.

The EEOC prefers that employers file Form EEO-1 online. The Form, along with instructions on how to file it, can be found here. If you have any questions about Form EEO-1 or any other employment-related matter, please contact any member of the Labor and Employment Law Practice Group at Warner Norcross & Judd.
