The 2017 EEO-1 Report Filing Period is Now Open

January 25, 2018

EEO-1 Report filing period is open. All employers in the private sector with 100 or more employees must file the EEO-1 report before March 2018.

The EEO-1 Report filing period is now open. 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.

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 2017.

Filing Process

The EEOC prefers that these reports are file 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.

Due Date

In previous years, the due date for the EEO-1 has been September 30th. However, significant changes to the EEO-1 were planned under the Obama Administration and the due date was extended. The new requirements were stayed in August of 2017. However, due to the late nature of that stay, the extended due date of March 31st, 2018 was kept.
