June 2022: EEOC Extends EEO-1 Deadline for 2021 Workforce Data Reports

08 Jun


Update Applicable to:
All employers

What happened?
The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) announced that the EEO-1 reporting requirements have now been extended. The new deadline for 2021 submissions is June 21, 2022. According to the EEOC, no additional 2021 EEO-1 reports will be accepted after that date.

What are the details?
Mandated under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act, the EEO-1 report is an annual survey that requires certain employers to submit information about their workforces by race or ethnicity, gender, and job categories by March 31 every year. The EEOC uses the collected data to enforce Title VII’s prohibitions against employment discrimination based on race, color, religion, national origin, or sex.   

In general, a private-sector employer is subject to EEO-1 reporting if it:

  • Has 100 or more employees;
  • Has 15-99 employees and is part of a group of employers with 100 or more employees; or
  • Is a federal contractor with 50 or more employees and a contract of $50,000 or more.
