Not the most exciting news, but rumor has it, the EEOC recently (end of January) finished mailing the 2017 EEO-1 survey Notification Letters to applicable employers.  Who is an “applicable employer”?  Private employers with 100 or more employees and a federal government contractor or first-tier subcontractors with 50 or more employees and a sub/contract of $50,000 or more.

The Notification Letters contain information on how to file the EEO-1 report (of course its all online too If your company filed an EEO-1 report in 2016 or meets the criteria for filing the report and have not received the Notification Letter you should immediately reach out to the EEO-1 Joint Reporting Committee at 1-877-392-4647 or  Don’t forget – the OMB stayed the revised EEO-1 report requiring employers to report employee’s compensation data. Accordingly, employers should continue using the previously approved EEO-1 form that requires employers to report data about employees’ ethnicity, race, and sex by job category, to comply with FY2017 reporting requirements. The deadline for submitting the EEO-1 report is March 31, 2018.
