On April 12, 2022, the EEOC opened its 2021 EEO-1 Component 1 data collection survey. Covered employers must submit and certify their EEO-1 Component 1 Report by May 17, 2022. As the federal agency previously announced, it has discontinued the EEO-1 Component 1 Type 6 Establishment List Report. Organizations must file their information through the EEO-1 Component 1 Online Filing System.
Covered employers have a legal obligation to submit annual workforce demographic data on their employees by race/ethnicity, sex, and job category. The data include seven race/ethnicity categories and 10 job categories. The EEOC uses EEO-1 Component 1 data to investigate employment discrimination charges against employers and to provide information about the employment status of minorities and women.
EEO-1 Component 1 filers with accounts from the 2019/2020 reporting period will need to update their passwords when returning to the system. First-time filers will need to set up an account to access the EEO-1 Component 1 system.
Private employers. Employers with 100 or more employees, not including state and local governments, public primary and secondary school systems, institutions of higher education, American Indian or Alaska Native tribes, and tax-exempt private membership clubs other than labor organizations, are required to file the EEO-1 Component 1 Report. Employers with fewer than 100 employees are required to file the Report if the company is owned or affiliated with another company, or there is centralized ownership, control, or management such that the group legally constitutes a single enterprise, and the entire enterprise employs a total of at least 100 employees.
Federal contractors. Also required to file the EEO-1 Component 1 Report are federal contractors who are not exempt as provided for under 41 CFR 60-1.5; have 50 or more employees; are prime contractors or first tier subcontractors; and (1) have a contract, subcontract, or purchase order amounting to $50,000 or more or (2) serve as depositories of government funds in any amount; or (3) are financial institutions that are issuing and paying agents for U.S. Savings Bonds and savings notes.
