Attention Employers: Prepare for Reinstated EEO-1 Pay Data Reporting by Summer’s End

Does your company employ 100 people or more? If so, be forewarned – a federal court has lifted the Office of Management and Budget’s stay of the revised EEO-1 form that requires companies to submit a summary of 2018 wage information and hours worked for all employees by race, ethnicity and sex by job category to the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC).

Submission to the EEOC is mandated by the end of summer. That being said, impacted employers should begin collecting the required information as soon as possible. Once they do, the data is to be presented no later than September 30, 2019 as Component 2 of the EEO-1 form (which will supplement the EEOC’s collection of employers’ demographic data).

Employers are encouraged to use this as an opportune time to conduct a pay audit to proactively identify potential areas of unexplained wage disparity. Of course, if you have any questions about the pay data collection requirements or auditing pay practices, please contact the employment lawyers at Michelman & Robinson, LLP.
