New EEO-1 Reporting Requirements Suspended

The new EEO-1 reporting form, which would have required certain employers to submit employee wages and hours worked alongside existing requirements, has been suspended indefinitely by the Office of Management and Budget’s Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs (OIRA).

In a memo issued by OIRA Administrator, Neomi Rao, the OIRA is “initiating a review and immediate stay of the effectiveness of those aspects of the EEO-1 form that were revised on September 29, 2016.”

According to a statement from the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) Acting Chair, Victoria Lipnic, the “previously approved EEO-1 form which collects data on race, ethnicity and gender by occupational category will remain in effect. Employers should plan to comply with the earlier approved EEO-1 (Component 1) by the previously set filing date of March 28, 2018.”
