2019 EEO-1 Filing Period Postponed Until 2021

Thursday, May 7, 2020

Today, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) announced that due to COVID-19, it is postponing the collection of 2019 EEO-1 "Component 1" data until next year. The EEOC is still awaiting clearance from the White House Office of Management and Budget (OMB) to collect 2019 Component 1 data, and has decided that in light of the disruption caused by COVID-19, once OMB's expected approval is given it will make more sense to collect the 2019 data, along with 2020 data, beginning in March 2021 in conjunction with the normal EEO-1 filing deadline. A notice from the EEOC announcing the postponement is expected to be published in tomorrow's Federal Register. CWC plans to publish a memorandum next week with additional details on this development and what it means for EEO-1 filers. 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.
