Employers Must Submit 2017 and 2018 EEO-1 Data by September 30, 2019

Earlier this week, we shared with you that the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) was ordered by a federal judge to begin collecting wage data from employers who file an EEO-1 form this fall. On Thursday, the EEOC announced that, by September 30, 2019, employers will be required to submit the wage data for both 2017 and 2018. The revised EEO-1 form will now include two parts:

  • Component 1: which seeks demographic data on race, gender and ethnicity by job category (which is what covered employers have historically been required to report); and
  • Component 2: which requires employers to report W-2 wage data and hours worked for the reported employees within 12 specified pay bands.

The EEOC is currently collecting Component 1 data, and that information must be submitted by May 31, 2019. Exactly when it will begin collecting Component 2 data is not known, but the EEOC stated that it “expects” to do so sometime in mid-July. Additional information about the new EEO-1 reporting requirements can be found at

If you have any questions, please contact any member of Warner's Labor and Employment Practice Group.

On June 12, 2019, from noon to 1 p.m., Warner will be hosting a free webinar on this new EEO-1 reporting obligation. We also will be discussing how to conduct a pay equity audit. Click here to register. We hope you will be able to join us.
