BREAKING NEWS: EEOC ANNOUNCES APRIL 26 OPENING DATE FOR THE COLLECTION OF 2019 AND 2020 EEO-1 COMPONENT 1 DATA

Employers Will Have Until July 19 to Submit Two Years of EEO-1 Data

After delaying the opening of the 2019 EEO-1 Component 1 Data Collection on May 8, 2020 in light of the COVID-19 public health emergency, the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) announced today that the 2019 and 2020 EEO-1 Component 1 data collection will open on Monday, April 26, 2021.

The deadline for submitting 2019 and 2020 EEO-1 Component 1 data will be Monday, July 19, 2021.  Recognizing the continuing differential impacts of the pandemic on workplaces nationwide and the requirement to submit two years of EEO-1 data, the EEOC is extending the data collection period this year from 10 weeks to 12 weeks to provide employers additional time to file.

The EEO-1 Component 1 collects workforce data from employers with 100 or more employees (and federal contractors with 50 or more employees).  The EEOC will begin to formally notify EEO-1 filers via email beginning on March 29, 2021.  Filers should begin preparing to submit data in anticipation of the April 26 opening of the data collection period.

EEO filers can visit https://EEOCdata.org for more information regarding updates on the data collection. When the collection opens, resources to assist filers with their submissions will be available online at https://EEOCdata.org. The EEOC Filer Support Team will also be available to respond to filer inquiries and to provide additional filling assistance.

The EEOC advances opportunity in the workplace by enforcing federal laws prohibiting employ­ment discrimination. More information is available at www.eeoc.gov. Stay connected with the latest EEOC news by subscribing to our email updates.
