The EEOC has confirmed that it will collect 2018 EEO-1 pay data (Component 2) by September 30th, 2019, responding to Judge Tanya Chutkan’s recent court order. In addition to requiring 2018 pay data, Chutkan gave the EEOC the choice of collecting 2017 pay data by the September 30th deadline or collecting 2019 pay data during the 2020 reporting period. Today, on May 2nd, the EEOC decided to collect 2017 data.
The agency expects to open their portal for Component 2 collection by mid-July and will notify filers of the precise opening date as soon as it’s available. Though there’s still a possibility of the federal government appealing this decision, it’s still very important that employers are familiar with the Component 2 requirements and that they start preparing accordingly.
Keep in mind that the deadline to submit race, ethnicity, and gender data (Component 1) is still May 31, 2019.
