EEOC Delays EEO-1 Report to 2021

The EEOC announced on May 7, 2020 that it was delaying the opening of the 2019 EEO-1 Component 1 data collection due to the COVID-19 pandemic. In the notice to be published in the May 8, 2020 Federal Register, the EEOC stated that in order to relieve employers of unnecessary burdens during the pandemic, it was delaying the opening of the 2019 EEO-1 Report as well as the 2020 EEO-3 and EEO-5 data collections until 2021. Employers should expect to submit their 2019 EEO-1 Component 1 data along with their 2020 EEO-1 Component 1 data in March 2021. The agency will notify filers of the precise date the portal will open as soon as it becomes available.
