Q. I work for a company that employees more than 100 employees. I heard somewhere that we now have to include pay data and hours worked on our EEO-1 forms. Is that true?
A. Yes! Beginning with calendar year 2017, employers with 100 or more employees will be required to submit pay data and hours worked in the newly revised EEO-1 report. Adding pay data to the form means that the EEOC and the OFCCP will now have a snapshot of employers’ pay practices across protected categories of sex, race and ethnicity.
The 2017 EEO-1 report will not need to be filed until March 2018. However, it is important that employers prepare now so that their pay data for calendar year 2017 is compliant.
