EEO-1 Report Overhaul Proposed for 2017
What might be changing?
The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) proposed changes to its EEO-1 report, which would require employers with 100 or more employees to submit W-2 earnings data and actual hours worked for all employees. Federal contractors with 50-99 employees would not report pay data on the revised EEO-1 report. Compliance would begin with the 2017 EEO-1 reporting cycle.
Why is the EEOC collecting pay data?
Access to pay data will help the EEOC and the Labor Department’s Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs identify and combat pay discrimination. This data will allow both offices to better focus agency investigations, as well as help employers evaluate their own pay practices to prevent pay discrimination in their workplaces.
What can employers do now?
While the proposed changes have not been finalized, now is a good time to review your company’s pay practices and ensure employees are being paid accurately and if there will be any issues with reporting your company’s pay data.
