White House Suspends EEO-1 Pay Data Reporting
White House Suspends EEO-1 Pay Data Reporting

Last week the White House Office of Management and Budget (OMB) announced the suspension and review of the new EEO-1 pay data reporting requirement for EEO-1 reports due on March 31, 2018.

For years, employers with at least 100 employees have been required to complete and submit EEO-1 reports of their employees by race, ethnicity and gender.  Last year the EEO-1 report was expanded to include employee hours and pay data.  The intent of the pay data reporting requirement was to disclose pay gaps so that possible pay discrimination practices could be investigated.

While the pay data reporting requirement is under review, employers with at least 100 employees must continue to report employment by race, ethnicity and gender.  Employers may either use the revised version of the EEO-1 report form that includes pay data, with this portion left blank, or they may use the prior EEO-1 form that did not require inclusion of pay data.

In order to facilitate the new pay data reporting requirement, the usual September EEO-1 reporting deadline had been extended to March 31, 2018.  Although the pay data requirement has been suspended, completed EEO-1 reports (without inclusion of pay data or hours worked) will continue to be due by the March 31, 2018 deadline.  

This blog is presented under protest by the law firm of Ervin Cohen & Jessup LLP.  It is essentially the random thoughts and opinions of someone who lives in the trenches of the war that often is employment law–he/she may well be a little shell-shocked.  So if you are thinking “woohoo, I just landed some free legal advice that will fix all my problems!”, think again.  This is commentary, people, a sketchy overview of some current legal issue with a dose of humor, but commentary nonetheless; as if Dennis Miller were a lawyer…and still mildly amusing.  No legal advice here; you would have to pay real US currency for that (unless you are my mom, and even then there are limits).  But feel free to contact us with your questions and comments—who knows, we might even answer you.  And if you want to spread this stuff around, feel free to do so, but please keep it in its present form (‘cause you can’t mess with this kind of poetry).  Big news: Copyright 2017.  All rights reserved; yep, all of them. If you have any questions about this article, contact the writer directly, assuming he or she was brave enough to attach their name to it.
