UPDATE: The U.S. District Court for Washington D.C. held a hearing on the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission’s (EEOC) proposal to extend the EEO-1 pay data collection from May 31 to Sept. 30 on Tuesday. The EEOC said at the hearing it would be unable to adequately collect the data by the scheduled May 31 deadline. The National Women's Law Center and other worker-advocacy groups said they want the EEOC to hold to the May 31 deadline for all EEO-1 information, including pay data, or clearly show why that's not possible.
District Judge Tanya Chutkan said she plans to provide a final ruling on the matter soon. WorldatWork will update you when a decision is rendered.
The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) is hoping to give EEO-1 filers a small reprieve, according to court documents filed on Wednesday.
Employers required to file EEO-1 reports — employers with at least 100 employees and federal contractors with 50 or more employees and at least $50,000 in government contracts — might now have more time to submit their information, with a new deadline of Sept. 30.
Following the reinstatement of the EEO-1 pay data collection requirements on March 4, employers were given an original filing deadline of May 31. But in its court filings, the EEOC said it was not practical to expect employers to collect and report the required data by that date and, therefore, extended the deadline to the end of September.
However, the new deadline has not yet posted to the EEOC website.
The reporting period opened on March 18.
