EEOC Delays Annual EEO-1 Filing Period Due to COVID-19


The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission announced that it is delaying the submission of this year’s EEO-1 forms until March 2021 because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Normally, employers must submit demographic workforce data for the prior calendar year by March 31. This year’s submission had been delayed due to issues with the short-lived and ill-fated addition of compensation data to the required collection. The EEOC will be collecting the EEO-1 data for both 2019 and 2020 in March 2021.
