Reestablishment of the EEO-1 Component 1 Employer Information Report

On January 12, 2021, the U.S Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) issued a press release announcing the reestablishment of the EEO-1 Component 1 employer information report. The Commission also notified EEO-1 filers that the EEO-1 filing platform will open in April 2021. The exact opening date and the report submission deadline have not yet been announced.

The EEOC requires employers with 100 or more employees and federal contractors with 50 or more employees and at least $50,000 in contracts to provide employee data categorized by race, ethnicity, gender, and job category via the EEO-1 report.

The 2019 EEO-1 report, initially due March 2020, was delayed by the EEOC due to the COVID-19 pandemic. For eligible filers, this means that both the 2019 and 2020 EEO-1 filings will be due in 2021.

Be Advised

The submission deadline will be announced on the EEOC’s home page at Additionally, the EEOC will send notification letters to filers. For employers who are unsure if their business is required to file an EEO-1, be sure to review information on who must file on the EEOC’s site.
