EEOC Extends EEO-1 Filing Deadline


Citing the continuing challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission has announced an extension to the filing period – now ending on October 25, 2021- for the (typically) annual submission of EEO-1 workforce demographic information regarding employees’ race, ethnicity and sex.

Because last year’s submission was postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, those employers subject to the filing requirement will need to submit data for both 2019 and 2020. Employers who are required to file an EEO-1 form are those with 100 or more employees and federal contractors and first-tier subcontractors with 50 or more employees. Employers may file their EEO-1 data electronically, and obtain more information and assistance about the filing requirements, here
