Revised EEO-1 Report

Dec 19, 2016

The EEOC has announced a revised EEO-1 Report to collect summary pay data from employers, including federal contractors and subcontractors. The first deadline for submitting the new EEO-1 Report will be March 31, 2018.

Starting with the 2017 report:

  • private employers and federal contractors with 100 or more employees will include the summary pay data in their 2017 EEO-1 Report.
  • Federal contractors with 50-99 employees will file the EEO-1 without the summary pay data

The 2017 reporting period is a transition period. This means that employers will have 18 months to make the change. After the transition year the report will be due every March 31.

Employers will count their employees during the "workforce snapshot period”. Starting with the EEO-1 report of 2017 data, the "workforce snapshot period" will be October 1 to December 31, 2017. Each employer may choose any pay period during this three-month "workforce snapshot period" to count its full and part-time employees for the EEO-1 report.

Employers have a choice on how to count hours for employees who are FLSA exempt. They may use either:

  1. 40 hours per week for full-time employees and 20 hours per week for part-time employees, or
  2. Report the number of hours the employees actually worked

The revised EEO-1 report has two new elements:

  1. Summary pay data: Employers report the total number of full and part-time employees during the reporting year in each of 12 pay bands listed for each EEO-1 Job Category. Employers will use earnings reported in Box 1 of the W-2 Form.
  2. Aggregate hours worked data: Employers count and report the number of hours worked that year by all the employees accounted for in each pay band.

Consistent with current reporting practices, employers will report via the EEO-1 Online Filing System or they can use the portal to electronically transmit a data file. Affected employers will need to compile the summary pay data and aggregate hours worked to include in the revised EEO-1 Report.
