EEOC Delays EEO Data Collections Due to COVID-19

By Higginbotham on May 07 , 2020


Today the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) announced that it is delaying the collection of EEO-1 Component 1 information—which asks for the number of employees who work for a covered business sorted by job category, race, ethnicity and gender—until 2021.

“The EEOC recognizes the impact that the current public health emergency is having on workplaces across America and the challenges that both employers and employees alike are now facing,” the agency said in a statement. “Delaying the collections until 2021 will ensure that EEO filers are better positioned to provide accurate, valid and reliable data in a timely manner.”
