As a reminder, EEO-1 filers must submit pay data (also known as Component 2 data) for calendar year 2017, in addition to data for calendar year 2018, by September 30, 2019. More information on how to file can be found in MRA’s previous article.

And in an interesting turn of events last week, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) announced that in the future it will not require employers to produce EEO-1 Component 2 data. Essentially, the EEOC felt the burden imposed on employers to gather the data outweighs the usefulness of the data for the agency.   

Bottom Line for Employers

Nothing has changed for this year’s submission. EEO-1 filers are still required to submit 2017 and 2018 Component 2 pay data by September 30, 2019. Specifically, employers must submit employees' hours worked and pay information from their W-2 forms by job category, race, ethnicity, and sex.
