EEO-1 Component-1 Tentative Data Collection and Filing Deadlines Announced

On January 3, 2022, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) announced that EEO-1 Component 1 data collection for 2021 is scheduled to tentatively open on Tuesday, April 12, 2022. A tentative deadline for submission of the EEO-1 Component 1 Report is set for Tuesday, May 17, 2022.

Just as in the past, updates, resources, and additional information regarding the data collection and submission process will be posted to the EEO-1 website as they become available.

Additionally, on January 6, 2022, the EEOC announced that effective for the 2021 collection year, it will be discontinuing the EEO-1 Component 1 Type 6 Establishment List Report (“Type 6 Report”) in “continuing efforts to modernize the agency’s EEO data collections and to improve the quality of data collected.”

For those filers that submitted Type 6 Reports for the 2019 and 2020 EEO-1 Component 1 data collection and reporting, notifications via email have been sent to alert those filers of the discontinuation of the use of Type 6 Reports. Those filers will be required to use the Type 8 Reports going forward.

For more information on the various report types utilized in the EEO-1 Component 1 data collection process and discontinuation of the Type 6 Report, please review the EEO-1 Component 1 Fact Sheet: Report Types prepared by the EEOC.
