Due to the federal government shutdown, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) has extended the deadline for employers to submit their EEO-1 Reports for 2018. The new deadline is now May 31, 2019.
The EEO-1 Report is an annual federally mandated survey that collects workforce data from employees including race, gender, ethnicity, and job category. The information is then used by the EEOC to enforce federal laws against employment discrimination and discriminatory pay practices.
Usually, the EEO-1 Report is due by March 31st of each year. The government shutdown delayed the opening of the online filing system used to submit 2018 reports. The EEO-1 Filing System is expected to become available for 2018 submissions in early March 2019. Employers should monitor the EEO-1 website about filing requirements and when the system will be open for 2018 Reports.
