EEO-1 Reporting in 2022: What's New?

The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) has now opened the EEO-1 Reporting portal on April 12th, 2022, but there was a delay in the opening until 12:00 PM (ET). There were also several complaints made by Employers and the public about the shortened reporting period which might mean there may be deadline extensions.


EEOC representatives disclosed that the EEOC plans to close the 2021 EEO-1 filing platform on June 21, 2022. While this schedule could change as 2021 filings proceed, this proposed timetable suggests that the EEOC intends to conclude 2021 filings on an abbreviated schedule compared to prior EEO-1 filing windows.


The EEOC’s 2021 EEO-1 Component 1 data collection should be less complicated than the 2019 and 2020 EEO-1 filings, which posed several obstacles, including a new filing platform, paper-mailed login information, a requirement of filing two years of reports, and the abandonment of the new platform’s mergers and acquisition system deep into last year’s filing cycle.


In addition to providing the update on the portal opening and reporting deadline, the most recent update announced EEOC’s discontinuation of the Type 6 Establishment Report for employers who have establishments with fewer than 50 employees. Instead, employers will now be required to use the Type 8 report. Citing the Agency’s continuing efforts of “modernization” and work to improve the quality of data.


EEOC has already announced one change for the 2021 report. EEOC will discontinue the EEO-1 Component 1 Type 6 Establishment List Report for establishments with fewer than 50 employees. These establishments must now use the Type 8 Establishment Report for the 2021 filing cycle.

Why Should You Attend This Training?

The EEO-1 Reporting Period was shortened and as a result, Employers may scrabble to meet the May 17, 2022 deadline. It is expected like in the last reporting period that there will be updates throughout the reporting period. However, this training will ensure you have all the updates and resources to access any new update that evolves.


Covered employers are encouraged to confirm that all employees have had the opportunity to voluntarily self-identify their gender, ethnicity, and race. If employees who have not responded to this voluntary invitation, employers may re-extend the invitation and/or rely on employment documents such as an I-9 or visual observation. If an employer needs to rely on visual observation, it will be easier to gather this information now rather than waiting until April 2022.




EEO-1 Reporting Obligation

Businesses with 100 or more employees and some federal contractors with at least 50 employees must submit an annual EEO-1 form, which asks for information from the previous year about the number of employees who worked for the business, sorted by job category, race, ethnicity, and gender.
