On July 15, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) opened a web-based portal for the collection of pay data for calendar years 2017 and 2018 [EEOC Press Release, 7-15-19]. The EEOC also has new resources on its website to help employers comply with the new reporting requirements by the September 30 deadline.
Guidance to Help Employers
The new resources include:
- A sample form to collect the pay data
- An instruction booklet for filers
- A user’s guide
- A fact sheet
- Upload file specifications
The sample form reminds employers that both full- and part-time employees must be reported for the snapshot period (October 1 through December 31) of the corresponding year.
EEOC contracted with the National Opinion Research Center (NORC) at the University of Chicago to conduct the Component 2 EEO-1 Compensation Data Collection. Employers can contact NORC at 877-324-6214 or [email protected] with questions.
