Equal Employment Opportunity Commission SealThe deadline for the Employment Information Report (EEO-1) has been extended to June 1, the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) announced Friday. It had been March 31.

For the 2017 EEO-1 reporting cycle, the EEO-1 will collect data on the race, ethnicity, and sex of workers, by job category, from private employers with 100 employees or more and federal contractors with 50 employees or more than $50,000 in contract(s). If you have questions, you can call the agency at 877-392-4647.

This is the third deadline change for the 2017 EEO-1. Typically, these reports are filed in September of the same year, but for 2017, the EEOC had planned to add wage data to the report, so it moved the deadline to March 31.  The wage data reporting plan has been put on hold, however, but the EEOC kept the new deadline anyway.

According to the website HR Dive, the delay to June 1 can be attributed to “an influx of requests for technical assistance in a short period of time, which slowed agency response time.”
