Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) reports (form EEO-1) must be submitted by employers who have 100 or more employees and employers who employ a total of 100 or more employees from “affiliated entities.” The data must include all full-time and part-time employees.
Due to the government shutdown, the deadline to submit EEO-1 data is extended until May 31, 2019 from the usual March 31 deadline. Filing the EEO-1 report is required by federal law.
For more than 50 years, these reports were due on October 1 each year. On August 29, 2017, the White House Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs notified the EEOC that it was immediately and indefinitely staying the pay data collection aspects of the revised EE-1 form. The change was made due to concerns raised by employer organizations and NADA. Following the announcement, the future submission date changed to March 31. This year it is May 31, 2019 due the government shutdown.
Entities are considered “affiliated” if they have centralized ownership, control or management. Even if each location or business operation is a separate corporation or business for tax and other purposes, they will still be considered affiliated entities if there is common ownership or control Multi-establishment employers must file the following multiple reports.
- A report for the principal or headquarters office;
- A report for each individual location which employs more than 50 persons;
- A consolidated report covering all locations and entities, including those with fewer than 50 employees; and
- A list showing the name, address, total number of employees; and
- A list showing the name, address, total number employees, and the major activity for each location (i.e. the type of product manufactured or sold or the type of service provided. This information must accompany the consolidated report.)
