2019 EEO-1 Reporting Deadline and Requirements

As part of compliance regulations, applicable employers must submit their EEO-1 reports to the EEOC each year. Typically, the deadline for the EEO-1 survey is March 31, 2019. Had this year been a typical year, the date would have moved to April 1, 2019, since the deadline falls on a Sunday.  However, due to the recent government shutdown, the portal for submitting EEO-1 surveys was not officially opened until March 18, 2019. As such, an extension has been granted with all EEO-1 required data to be submitted by employers by May 31, 2019.

Who Needs to Report?

All employers with 100 or more employees.  If you are a conglomerate with multiple affiliations, subsidiaries, etc. employing employees across multiple locations, the EEOC typically considers the total number of employees of your entire enterprise and has different reporting requirements based on various sizes of each location.  See the Multi-Establishment instructions for completing the appropriate reports: Click Here to See the EEO-1 Instructions). Some Federal contractors with less an 100 employees are also required to complete and submit the EEO-1 survey.  Learn more about reporting requirement breakdowns in our previous EEO-1 reporting blog.

What Information Must Be Reported?

Reports should include a snapshot of information from a pay period anytime between October 1, 2018, through December 31, 2018, and must include the following employment information for each employee:

  • Gender
  • Race/Ethnicity (permitting employees to self-identify this information is ideal)
