2019 & 2020 EEO-1 Report Filing Period 

On March 29, 2021, the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) announced 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.

All employers in the private sector with 100 or more employees and federal contractors or subcontractors with 50 or more employees or $50,000 or more in federal contracts must file the EEO-1 report each year.  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.  

Filing Process

Covered employers are required to provide data about their workforce, including race, ethnicity, sex, and job category. This information should be collected from a “snapshot period,” or payroll period, in the 4th quarter of 2019 and 2020.

The EEOC prefers that these reports are filed online through their filing system. There are several reports available in HR & Payroll to aid you in this process, including the EEO Detail report, the EEO Headcount report, and the EEO-1 Report File in CSV format.

The EEOC will not be collecting EEO-1 component 2 pay data reports.

Additional Resources

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.
