The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) has officially announced that the 2023 EEO-1 reporting period will commence on April 30, 2024. This crucial update signals a significant period for U.S. employers, emphasizing the necessity of readiness in compliance reporting for workforce demographics—specifically regarding race, ethnicity, and gender.


To support employers in this process, the EEOC is introducing several resources:


  • The EEO-1 online Filer Support Message Center: Set to launch on April 30, 2024, offering essential assistance throughout the filing process.
  • Updated 2023 EEO-1 Component 1 Instruction Booklet and Data File Upload Specifications: Available on the EEOC website by March 19, 2024.
  • New FAQs: Addressing this year's filings, to be released prior to the filing platform's opening.

A significant point to note is the omission of EEO-1 Component 2 pay data collection for the 2023 filings from the announcement. This suggests that, contrary to speculation, pay data collection will not be a requirement for 2023, focusing attention strictly on Component 1 data.


Key Reminders for Employers:

  • Annual Submission Requirement: All employers with 100 or more U.S. employees, along with federal contractors with 50 or more U.S. employees, are mandated to file EEO-1 reports annually.
  • Workforce Snapshot Period: The 2023 EEO-1 report should reflect a payroll snapshot taken between October 1 and December 31, 2023.
  • Critical Compliance: The submission of Standard Form 100 (EEO-1 reports) through the EEOC's dedicated EEO-1 Component 1 data collection website is essential for compliance.

With the EEO-1 reporting deadline increasingly becoming a focal point of preparation, it is crucial for covered employers to refine their data collection processes, ensuring readiness for a timely and precise submission.

Beyond meeting regulatory requirements, EEO-1 reporting plays a pivotal role in promoting workplace diversity and accountability. These reports offer invaluable insights into workforce demographics, assisting the EEOC and the U.S. Department of Labor's Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) in their mission to uphold employment equality laws, support employment pattern research, and motivate employer self-assessment in diversity and compliance practices. Furthermore, some organizations proactively share their demographic data publicly, demonstrating their dedication to transparency and diversity efforts.
