EEO-1 data collection opens on April 26

On March 29, the EEOC announced that the 2019 and 2020 EEO-1 Component 1 data collection will open on April 26, 2021. The collection opens following the agency’s COVID-19-prompted delay of the 2019 EEO-1 Component 1 Data Collection on May 8, 2020.

The EEO-1 Component 1 collects workforce data from employers with 100 or more employees and federal contractors with 50 or more employees. The EEOC said that it will begin to formally notify EEO-1 filers through email beginning on March 29, 2021. Filers should begin preparing to submit data in anticipation of the April 26 opening of the data collection period.

Deadline extended this year. The deadline for submitting 2019 and 2020 EEO-1 Component 1 data is July 19, 2021. Recognizing the continuing differential impacts of the pandemic on workplaces nationwide and the requirement to submit two years of EEO-1 data, the EEOC is extending the data collection period this year from 10 weeks to 12 weeks in order to give employers additional time to file.

More information. Further information on the data collection is available at https://EEOCdata.org, including updates on the data collection. When the collection opens, resources to assist filers with their submissions will be available on the webpage. The EEOC Filer Support Team will also be available to respond to filer inquiries and to provide additional filling assistance.
