When do you have the file your EEO-1 this year?

EEO1-1024x735

We don’t talk much about the EEO-1 Report on this blog.

The EEO-1 is the federally-mandated survey of company employment data categorized by race/ethnicity, gender and job category Companies with 100 or more employees must file it each year. Certain federal contractors with 50 or more employees must file the EEO-1 too.

Now, some of you may be thinking, “Wait, what?” “Eric, did the recent government shutdown impact when our company needs to file the EEO-1?”

Indeed it did.


But, before I get to the new EEO-1 filing deadline, as President of the Pennsylvania Bar Association Labor and Employment Law Section, I want to give a quick plug for the 2019 Section Retreat. It’s on March 8-9 at the Hershey Lodge. And, this year, we’re checking all the right boxes:

  • Amazing speakers and sessions
  • Up to 5 hours of substantive CLE credits, including 1.0 ethics CLE
  • Networking opportunities at every turn
  • Breakfast, coffee, lunch, drinks, dinner, and plenty of chocolate throughout
  • If you choose to spend the night at the hotel, there are wonderful accommodations for the whole family
    (We won’t judge you too much if you enjoy the 30,000 sq. ft. indoor pool complex featuring water slides, splash pads, and interactive water features more than your children do.)

My only concern is that space is limited and the price for Section Members to attend is so low ($199)

When must covered employers file the EEO-1?

Here’s the latest from the EEOC:

Due to the recent partial lapse in appropriations, the opening of the EEO-1 has been postponed until early March 2019. The deadline to submit EEO-1 data will be extended to May 31, 2019. Details and instructions for the 2018 EEO-1 Report filers will be forthcoming. Please continue to visit the EEO-1 website in the coming weeks for schedule updates.
