EEO-1 and Vets-100 Reports Due

September, 2006

Employers with federal contracts or subcontracts of $50,000 or more and 50 or more employees or employers who do not have federal contracts, but have 100 or more employees are required to complete the EEO-1 Report annually, by September 30 of each year. Employers required to complete the EEO-1 must report the makeup of their workforce by race, ethnicity, gender, and job category. Federal regulations also require that any employer with federal contracts or subcontracts in the amount of $25,000 or more annually file a VETS-100 Report by September 30. If this is the first time you have filed these reports, you'll want to get a head start as there are additional steps the first time you file.

Don't forget that there have been revisions to the EEO-1 Form for your 2007 report. In order to comply with these new changes, employers are encouraged to update their EEO programs and tracking methods, including new self-identification surveys for applicants and current employees and recategorizing employees in the "Officials and Managers" and "Professionals" job categories. Employers will be required to comply with the new form by the September 30, 2007 filing.

New changes to the EEO-1 Report include:

  • Adding a new category titled "Two or More Races"
  • Creates separate categories for "Asians" and "Pacific Islanders"
  • Renames "Black" as "Black or African American"
  • Renames "Hispanic" as "Hispanic or Latino"
  • Dividing the "Officials and Managers" job category into "Executive/Senior Level Officials and Managers" and "First/Mid-Level Officials and Managers"
  • Moving business and financial occupations to the "Professionals" job category
