In May of last year the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) announced that employers would not be required to file EEO-1 surveys in 2020 due to the Coronavirus outbreak, with the expectation that filings would be delayed until early 2021. More information about this announcement can be found in our blog post.
At the start of this year, two years of EEO-1 surveys – the 2019 and 2020 reporting periods – were expected to be due on March 31, 2021. However, EEOC announced this week that the filing system opening has been delayed again and is now scheduled for April 2021. Employers required to file EEO-1 reports should begin preparing to submit both 2019 and 2020 data in anticipation of the opening of the filing window in a few months.
HR Works has learned through contacts at the EEOC that the additional delay was caused by the agency transitioning to a new online filing platform. Though we don’t yet have details as to if there will be any changes with this transition, we will share any information we receive leading up to the filing window opening.
We will also continue to provide information related to specific opening dates and submission deadline dates as they are released. In the meantime, clients can reach out to their Affirmative Action Project Manager with any questions.
