In a recent post, I explained that a federal Judge reinstated an EEOC rule that requires EEO-1 filers to report wage and hour information by gender, race, and ethnicity. This is part of an effort to fight pay discrimination. As of that post, the EEOC had not set a deadline for covered employers to provide wage and hour information.
The EEOC has now confirmed that EEO-1 filers must provide the required wage and hour data for both 2017 and 2018 by September 30, 2019. The EEOC expects to begin collecting the data in mid-July 2019. Covered employers should consider periodically checking the EEOC website for updated information.
Only the wage and hour data is delayed until September 30. Employers still must provide the more familiar EEO-1 data on race/ethnicity and gender in various job categories for 2018 by May 31, 2019.
