Due to COVID-19 and related delays in Federal reporting requirements across the government, the EEOC has recently announced that it is delaying collection of 2019 EEO-1 Component 1 data (employment data categorized by race/ethnicity, gender and job category) until the EEOC resumes normal operations, estimated to be in 2021. An EEO-1 must be filed by all companies with more than 100 employees or federal contractors or first-tier subcontractors with 50 or more employees and a prime contract in excess of $50,000. The EEOC expects the 2019 Component 1 data collection will be collected in March 2021, along with 2020 EEO-1 data. The new deadline will be posted when it is determined, and all EEO-1 filers should receive a notification letter. Finally, the EEOC has stated that it will not collect Component 2 data (employment data categorized by pay) at all in the future (at least under the current administration).
