The August 23 deadline for employers to submit their EEO-1 report has been extended to October 25, 2021. The EEOC has made clear that no further extensions will be made.

This report will include filings for 2019 and 2020. Please keep in mind:

  • Companies must first file their 2019 report, and it must be approved before filing the 2020 report.

  • If you were not eligible in 2019, you must first certify that you were not eligible before filing for 2020.

  • If you were eligible in 2019 but not in 2020, you must file the 2019 report first, and then certify that you were ineligible in 2020.

  • If your company experienced a merger, acquisition or spinoff between January 2019 and December, 2020, prior to filing you must contact the Filer Support Team.

What is the EEO-1? As a quick refresher, the report must be filed by:

  • All private sector employers with 100 or more employees; and

  • All federal contracts who: - Have 50 or more employees, and - Are prime contractors or first tier subs, and either

i. Have a contract, subcontract or purchase order in excess of $50,000, or

ii. Serve as a depository of government funds in any amount, or is a financial institution which is an issuing and paying agent for

U.S. savings bonds and notes.

The dual year filing may cause delays when filing and obtaining approval. For this reason, it would be prudent not to delay, and to file as quickly as possible.
