Trump Administration Blocks Pay Data Reporting on EEO-1 Form

At the end of August, the Trump Administration blocked an Obama Administration change to the EEO-1 report that would have required employers to report their workforces’ pay data, in addition to the already-required reporting on race and gender.

However, the Trump Administration did not block the rule in its entirety. The Obama rule change also moved the period from which the workforce data was taken from a pay period in July through September to a pay period in October through December. Additionally, the rule pushed back the due date from September 30 of the reporting year to March 31 of the following year. The Trump Administration left these two rule changes in place.

Therefore, employers who are required to file an EEO-1 will still not have a report to file in 2017. Instead, covered employers must file their 2017 EEO-1 by March 31, 2018, and the workforce data must be based on a pay period that falls sometime in October to December 2017.

As a reminder, all employers with 100 or more employees must file an EEO-1. Additionally, any covered federal contractor with 50 or more employees must also file an EEO-1.
