UPDATE: Changes to EEOC Report

August 2017

The next EEO-1 report will be due on March 31, 2018.

In the past, each year by September 30, Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) reports (form EEO -1) were required to be submitted by employers who have 100 or more employees, and employers who employ a total of 100 or more employees from “affiliated entities.” This year it is being postponed until March 31, 2018.

For the past 50 years, the EEOC has collected workforce data about the number of employees by job category, sex, and ethnicity or race, using the EEO-1 report. They have never before collected data about pay.

The EEOC claims that by collecting this added pay data, and providing information to employers, the government and employers will be more effective in avoiding or reducing pay discrimination.

There will be no EEO-1 report due on September 30, 2017. The next EEO-1 report will be due on March 31, 2018.

If your dealership filed its 2016 EEO-1, before September 30, 2016, the dealership does not need to file an EEO-1 again until March 31, 2018. This would be the 2017 EEO-1.

The dealership will have 18 months between the due dates for the 2016 and 2017 EEO-1 reports.

As in the past, the EEO-1 will include data on all full-time and part-time employees. The information gathered in the report is primarily used for statistical purposes to measure the hiring practices of women and minorities and eliminate employment discrimination based on race, color, religion, sex or national origin in private industry. The information is also used in investigating employment discrimination allegations and the enforcement of federal anti-discrimination laws. The EEO-1 form has been changed to include data about pay because recent studies document that discrimination plays a role, even after accounting for factors like education, experience, or region.
