New Year Legal Updates: EEO-1 Survey and OSHA 300A Annual Summary Posting
January 30, 2018

EEO-1 Survey

The EEO-1 Survey for 2017 is now open for employers to complete. Employers required to complete the EEO-1 report had a reprieve from doing so as the typical date was previously moved from September 30, 2017, to March 31, 2018, for the 2017 reporting year.

An additional reprieve employers received during 2017 was the cancellation of adding pay data to the EEO-1 survey. This was a new requirement from the Obama era which included pay data in the reporting of employee information by job category, ethnicity, race, and gender.

As a reminder, what employers are required to complete and file the EEO-1 survey: Those private employers that meet the following:

  • Employers with 100 or more employees
  • Employers who are federal contractors with at least 50 employees and federal contracts of at least $50,000

The survey on eeoc.gov is open, and required employers have until March 31, 2018, to file. The report must be based on a payroll period in October, November of December 2017.

OSHA 300A Annual Summary Posting

Beginning February 1, employers must complete the OSHA Log 300, and post the 300A Annual Summary for 2017, unless they are exempt. The 300A Annual Summary must be completed and posted for each physical establishment location of the employer between February 1 and April 30.

Larger employers, those with 250 or more employees, and employers with 20-249 employees and are in certain high-risk industries, must also submit their 300A summary data electronically. The 2016 data was by December 15, 2017, and the 2017 data by July 1, 2018. Going forward large and high-risk employers must submit data electronically by each March 2nd beginning in 2019.
