EEOC to Open EEO-1 Portal for 2023 Workforce Data on April 30

The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) recently announced that the portal for private-sector employers to submit equal employment opportunity workforce data (EEO-1 Reports) from 2023 will open on April 30, 2024. The deadline to file is June 4, 2024.

Under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act (Title VII), certain employers must usually submit an EEO-1 Report by March 31 each year.

EEO-1 Reporting Background

The EEO-1 Report is a federally mandated survey that requires certain employers to submit workforce data categorized by race or ethnicity, gender, and job categories.

EEO-1 reporting is required for:

  • Private employers that have 100 or more employees (with limited exceptions for schools and other organizations)
  • Private employers with between 15 and 99 employees, if they are part of a group of employers that legally constitutes a single enterprise that employs a total of 100 or more employees
  • Federal contractors that have 50 or more employees, are either prime contractors or first-tier subcontractors, and have a contract, subcontract or purchase order amounting to $50,000 or more.

Employers filing EEO-1 Reports for the first time must register to log in and receive a password and further instructions for filing from the EEOC. Although the EEOC sends notification letters to employers it knows to be subject to EEO-1 requirements, all covered employers are responsible for obtaining and submitting the necessary information prior to the appropriate deadline.
