2022 EEO-1 Report Deadline to File Postponed

Deadline Postponed for 2022 EEO-1 Report Filing

The July deadline for employers to file their 2022 EEO-1 report has been postponed by U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) until a date yet to be announced in Fall 2023. The EEOC’s website stated that they were, “currently completing a mandatory, three-year renewal of the EEO-1 Component 1 data collection by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) under the Paperwork Reduction Act (PRA).”

The EEO-1 reporting is required for private employers with 100 or more employees and federal contractors with 50 or more employees to annually submit reports online through the EEOC’s system. State and local governments and public school systems are exempt. The EEO-1 report collects workforce demographic data from employers including job category, gender, race or ethnicity.

EEO-1 categories won’t change for 2022 reporting as they require a Commission vote and approval under the Paperwork Reduction Act, though may be revised in the future in response to the Supreme Court’s recent affirmative action case which included comments that the categories are overly broad.

Employers can stay informed on the postponed deadline to file their reports by visiting  EEO-1 Component 1 Data Collection Updates.

Employers that are required to file a 2022 EEO-1 report and need professional support or have additional questions can contact California Payroll at (925) 240-2400.
