The Equal Employment Opportunities Commission (EEOC) has once again extended the EEO-1 Reporting deadline from August 23, 2021, to October 25, 2021. This is the Final extension!! While this is a relief for many Employers, professionals responsible for completing the report. It is critical to ensure the report is completed by the final extension. The extension will be welcomed by employers with outstanding support requests, newly hired employees responsible for completing the report and employees who inherited the task of submitting the report.

As you may recall, in 2020, the EEOC delayed the opening of the 2019 EEO-1 Component 1 Data Collection due to the COVID-19 public health emergency. Therefore, this year, employers are required to make two submissions: one with 2019 EEO-1 data and one with 2020 EEO-1 data. 

The new filing portal offers many resources to complete the EEO-1 report. You will get clarity on the new EEO-1 reporting requirements and ensure accurate, timely filing. If Employers take the time to maximize the resources, it will help in filing the reports. You will be provided resources and best practices in migrating from current EEO-1 requirements to the new EEO-1 Form, including Component 1 filing of the Report and other pertinent information. Although the deadline is extended, Employers should not wait until the last minute to submit the report.
