Employers Must Report EEO-1 Component 2 Pay Data for 2017 and 2018 by September 30

BY: APA Staff | 05/03/19

The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) has informed employers of the September 30, 2019, due date for submission of calendar years 2017 and 2018 Component 2 pay data for the Employer Information Report (EEO-1).

The due date is a result of an April 25 order from a U.S. district court judge requiring the EEOC to collect EEO-1 Component 2 pay data broken down into pay bands and gender, ethnicity, and race (National Women’s Law Center v. Office of Management and Budget). The court allowed the EEOC to choose between 2017 or 2019 as a requirement for an additional year of pay data.

On April 29, the EEOC announced the September 30, 2019, due date for submission of 2018 Component 2 pay data, which was later published in the Federal Register [84 F.R. 18383, 5-1-19]. On May 3, the EEOC chose to collect data for 2017, which will be due on September 30, 2019, along with the 2018 data [84 F.R. 18974, 5-3-19].

The deadline for employers to complete the EEO-1 survey with Component 1 data for 2018 is May 31, 2019 [EEOC, The EEO-1 Survey Is Open].
