EEOC Data Collection Scheduled after COVID-19 Delay
February 8, 2021

The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) delayed the 2019 EEO-1 Component 1 and other EEO data collection requirements due to COVID-19. The EEOC has just announced when data collections will occur during 2021:

For Private Employers

  • The 2019 and 2020 EEO-1 Component 1 data collection can begin to be submitted in April 2021 via the EEOC home page. A specific date will be forthcoming.

Who must file?

As a reminder, private employers that have at least 100 employees are required to file component 1 data reports annually with the EEOC. Federal government contractors and first-tier subcontractors with 50 or more employees and at least $50,000 in contracts must also file component 1 data reports.

Other employers must also provide Component 1 data:

  • Public Elementary/Secondary School Districts – EEO-5 – July 2021
  • Local Referral Unions – EEO-3 – August 2021
  • State/Local Governments – EEO-4 – October 2021
