Protecting Employers Since 1985

EEO-1 Report Change

In a statement issued on August 29, 2017, the Acting Chair of the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission – Victoria Lipnic, announced that she had received from the Office of Management and Budget Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs (OIRA) – Neomi Rao – Administrator – informing her (Ms. Lipnic) that the OIRA was initiating a comprehensive review and issued an immediate stay of the “effectiveness of the pay data collection aspects of the EEO-1 Form”.

This is a tremendous relief to all Employers of 100 or more Employees and Federal Contractors who would have been required to submit pay data and hours worked in addition to other required demographic information.

While there is no guarantee that this eradication of needed information will be continued, it is at least a good sign.
