The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) has announced a proposed revision to the Employer Information Report (EEO-1) which will now include collecting pay data from employers with more than 100 employees, including federal contractors.
Employers with more than 100 employees are required to file an EEO-1 report which provides the federal government with workforce profiles from private sector employers by race, ethnicity, sex, and job category.
The new proposal will now add “pay data” as an added category. Pay data to be added includes pay ranges and hours worked. The collection of this new data is intended to assist the agency in identifying pay discrimination while at the same time assisting employers in promoting equal pay within the workplace.
The public will have until April 1, 2016 to submit comments to the new proposal with an anticipated effective date beginning with the September 2017 report.
We will continue to monitor this development in the anticipated new EEO-1 report requirements. Please contact Deena B. Rosendahl, Esq.via email or 201-947-8855 with any questions about whether your business is required to file an EEO-1 report and how this change may affect your business.
