EEOC Extends EEO-1 Filing Deadline to August 23, 2021

The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) has announced that the deadline to submit and certify your 2019/2020 EEO-1 Component 1 data has been extended to Monday, August 23, 2021.

Eligible employers are still encouraged by the EEOC to file the required EEO-1 report(s) as soon as possible. More from EEOC:

“For those filers who have contacted the EEO-1 Component 1 Help Desk and are awaiting a response, we ask for your patience as the Filer Support Team works through these requests. We will ensure that all filers will be able to file and that no one will be excluded.
We also ask that filers only contact the EEO-1 Component 1 Help Desk once regarding the same issue. Filers making multiple contacts for the same issue via phone, email, and online inquiry and/or from different email addresses with the same employer are increasing the number of requests into the help desk resulting in further delays.”

More information about how to file the reports can be found on the EEO-1 website:
