Law Firm Article 1, Article 2

What do employers need to do?

Employers have the responsibility of collecting the necessary data required for the completion of the EEO-1 Report. To accomplish this, it is essential to offer your workforce the opportunity to voluntarily disclose their gender and race/ethnicity information. In cases where employees choose not to self-identify, previous guidance from the agency suggests conducting visual identification of employees’ race/ethnicity or referring to other credible employment documents (excluding I-9s). In preparation for the reporting process, it is advisable to review past EEO-1 report submissions and guidance to identify the specific information you will need to gather when the reporting portal becomes accessible.
