Indefinite Suspension of the New EEO-1 Report

Posted September 1, 2017 Compliance Alert
compliance alert

The Office of Management and Budget’s Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs (OIRA) has indefinitely suspended the revised EEO-1 Report’s compliance date.  Major criticisms of the new format, including the large cost of compliance along with the lack of privacy safeguards precipitated its suspension.  Private-sector employers and covered federal contractors will not be required to include compensation and hours worked information in their 2017 EEO-1 report.

Next Step:

Employers should assume at this point that they will still be required to file an EEO-1 report by March 31, 2018 based on a “snapshot” of employees taken between October and December 2017.    Henderson Brothers, Inc.  will provide more information over the next few months.
