EEOC Updates System for Pay Data Reporting

BY: Jyme Mariani, Esq. | 09/06/19

Employers have until September 30, 2019, to submit Component 2 EEO-1 pay data for calendar years 2017 and 2018. The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) recently added an upload function to its Component 2 EEO-1 Online Filing System to assist in the reporting of pay data. The EEOC posts any updates on this page.

The file upload functionality is accessible after securely logging into the Component 2 EEO-1 Online Filing System via the EEOC’s LOGIN to File page. Updated file upload specifications are also available.

Other Resources and More Help

On July 15, the EEOC opened its 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 resources on its More Information to Support Filing page to help employers comply with the new reporting requirements, including: a sample form to collect the pay data, an instruction booklet for filers, and a fact sheet.

The 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.
