The delayed EEO-1 Component 1 data collection portal for 2022 will open on Tuesday, October 31, 2023. The deadline to file the 2022 EEO-1 Component 1 report is Tuesday, December 5, 2023.
All employers in the private sector with 100 or more employees and federal contractors or subcontractors with 50 or more employees or $50,000 or more in federal contracts must file the EEO-1 report each year. Filers should begin preparing to submit data in anticipation of the opening of the data collection period.
According to the EEOC, filing after the December 5, 2023, deadline may result in a “Notice of Failure to File” letter from the EEOC, and no reports will be accepted after January 9, 2024.
The EEO-1 Report is a federally mandated survey that collects workforce data categorized by race, ethnicity, sex, and job category. Under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act, certain employers must usually submit EEO-1 Reports by March 31st of each year. However, for the 2022 EEO-1 Reports, the EEOC has extended the portal’s opening date twice, first to mid-July and then to mid-fall, before making the most recent announcement.
Although the EEOC sends notification letters to employers known to be subject to EEO-1 requirements, all covered employers are responsible for obtaining and submitting the necessary information before the appropriate deadline. Employers filing EEO-1 Reports for the first time must register to receive login information, a password, and further instructions for filing from the EEOC.
