It’s Time to Complete the 2017 EEO-Survey

ATTENTION EMPLOYERS – the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission recently announced that the 2017 EEO-1 survey is now available on the EEOC website.  For those employers who are required to complete this form, the completed form must be submitted no later than March 31, 2018.

Who is required to complete the EEO-1 Survey?

All companies that meet the following criteria are required to file the EEO-1 report annually:

  • Companies who are subject to Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and who employ 100 or more employees; or
  • Companies who are subject to Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and who employ less than 100 employees if the company is owned by or corporately affiliated with another company and the entire enterprise employs a total of 100 or more employees; or
  • Federal government prime contractors or first-tier subcontractors who are subject to Executive Order 11246 and who employ 50 or more employees and who is a prime contract or first-tier subcontract amounting to $50,000 or more.

Are companies required to provide compensation data relating to their employees?

In late August 2017, the Office of Management and Budget stayed the pay data collection requirement for the 2017 EEO-1 report.  As a result, employers are not required to provide pay information on the 2017 EEO-1 form.

What do companies need to do to complete the 2017 EEO-1 Report?

To complete the report, employers must collect a snapshot of their employment data on a date of the employer’s choice ranging from October 1 to December 31, 2017.
