From the Equal Opportunity Employment Commission (EEOC):
EEO-1 Component 1 Data Collection
The EEO-1 Component 1 report is a mandatory annual data collection that requires all private sector employers with 100 or more employees, and federal contractors with 50 or more employees meeting certain criteria, to submit demographic workforce data, including data by race/ethnicity, sex and job categories. The filing by eligible employers of the EEO-1 Component 1 Report is required under section 709(c) of Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, as amended, 42 U.S.C. § 2000e-8(c), and 29 CFR 1602.7-.14 and 41 CFR 60-1.7(a). Employers can find additional eligibility information at https://eeocdata.org/eeo1.
Update: NEW and FINAL Filing Deadline for 2019 and 2020 EEO-1 Component 1 Data Collection
Recognizing the continuing impact of the pandemic on business operations, the deadline to submit and certify 2019 and 2020 EEO-1 Component 1 Reports HAS BEEN CHANGED. The new filing deadline is NOW Monday, October 25, 2021.
Please note that this new deadline is the FINAL DEADLINE and all eligible filers MUST submit data by this date. No additional changes to the filing deadline will be made.
We encourage eligible employers to file the required EEO-1 Component 1 report(s) as soon as possible.
After delaying the opening of the 2019 EEO-1 Component 1 data collection because of the COVID-19 public health emergency, the EEOC announced the opening of the 2019 and 2020 EEO-1 Component 1 data collection on April 26, 2021.
