EEO-1 Component 1 Data Collection: Deadline For Filing December 5

The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) announced that the annual EEO-1 Component 1 data collection for 2022 data opened Tuesday, October 31, 2023. The EEO-1 Component 1 report must be filed by Tuesday, December 5, 2023.

What is the EEO-1 Component 1 Report?

The EEO-1 Component 1 report is a mandatory annual report required of all private sector employers with 100 or more employees (and federal contractors with 50 or more employees meeting certain criteria). The report contains workforce demographic data including job categories, sex, and race or ethnicity.

EEO-1 Component 1 Instructions

For EEO-1 Component 1 instructions, employers should review the dedicated EEO-1 Component 1 website for employer resources and additional information including the 2022 EEO-1 Component 1 Instruction Booklet, and 2022 EEO-1 Component 1 Data File Upload Instructions.

The EEO-1 Component 1 Report must be electronically submitted through the EE0-1- Component 1 Online Filing System (OFS). Employers have the option of manually inputting the data into the OFS portal, or uploading a data file containing the workforce demographic data by using the data file upload specifications.

Beginning October 31, 2023, the EEO-1 online Filer Support Message Center (help desk) was available to assist filers with any questions regarding the 2022 data collection.

The 2022 instruction booklet has been redesigned to consolidate existing filer-support materials such as FAQS and fact sheets into a single resource, while also including additional clarifying information on reporting requirements. It is the EEOC’s hope that the updated instruction booklet will serve as a “one-stop-shop” for new and returning filers.

Next Steps

Employers should periodically check the dedicated EEO-1 Component 1 website for collection updates and supplementary resources as they become available, and stay ahead of the Tuesday, December 5, 2023 EEO-1 Component 1 filing deadline.
