Update Applicable to:
All employers who meet the requirements (Link)
The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) has announced a further delay in the start date for the 2022 EEO-1 filing process.
What are the details?
In our previous communication here, we informed you that the EEOC had originally scheduled to begin accepting submissions of the 2022 EEO-1 reports in mid-July 2023, the new start date has been moved to the fall of 2023.
Delayed Start Date and Preparation Time
In January 2023, the EEOC had tentatively scheduled the start date for the 2022 EEO-1 Component 1 Data Collection in mid-July 2023. However, only days away from the expected date, the EEOC has pushed the opening date to an unspecified time in the fall of 2023.
Reason for Delay
The EEOC explained that the delay is related to the completion of a mandatory three-year renewal of the EEO-1 Component 1 data collection by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) under the Paperwork Reduction Act (PRA). The EEOC is working on this renewal process, which has caused the postponement of the reporting schedule.
Implications and Reporting Changes
While discussions about changes to the EEO-1 reporting structure were underway to streamline the number of reports, the significant delay in the 2022 EEO-1 filing process was unexpected.

What do employers need to do?
The EEOC’s decision to delay the 2022 EEO-1 reporting deadline until the fall of 2023 allows employers additional time to gather the necessary data. Employers should stay updated on any further announcements from the EEOC regarding the exact opening date for the filing process and be prepared for a potentially busier reporting period in the fall.
