EEOC Reporting Delayed

EEOC Reporting Delayed

1.5 minute read

Employers who are subject to equal opportunity report (EEO) will not be required to file EEO surveys in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The following surveys which had expected to open in 2020, have been delayed:

EEO Reports/Surveys

Required From

Data Collection Delayed Until

2019 EEO-1 Component 1

Private employers with 100 or more employees and certain federal contractors

January 2021 (2019 & 2020 data will be collected)

2020 EEO-3

Local referral unions with 100 or more members

March 2021

2020 EEO-5

Public elementary and secondary school districts with 100 or more employees

March 2021


The surveys collect data about job categories, gender, race, and ethnicity. The EEOC uses this info to enforce Title VII and other fair employment laws. Pushing back the dates will ensure that filers are better positioned to provide reliable, accurate, and valid data in a timely manner. The EEOC will contact filers directly about the delayed survey openings. In addition, they will reach out when the precise date the surveys will open has been made available.
