FAQs Regarding EEO-1 Pay Data Reporting Now Available

Tuesday, July 2, 2019

For the first time since a federal court ordered the restoration of EEO-1 “Component 2” reporting requirements, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) has published a set of answers to Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) on the Component 2 filing website maintained by the EEOC’s contractor, NORC. Until now, the Component 2 filing website had merely served as a landing page with little guidance or information on what employers can expect.

While the 28 new FAQs present some additional guidance for EEO-1 filers, many of the responses are based on previously published materials, such as the EEO-1 instructions published in 2016.

CWC continues to collect questions from members with respect to EEO-1 Component 2 reporting for the EEOC’s attention and we welcome your questions about what additional guidance would be most helpful. We intend to relay these questions to the EEOC to ensure that appropriate agency guidance is being provided. In the meantime, if you have any questions, please feel free to contact one of our compliance policy experts at 202-629-5650 or info@cwc.org.
