Government Contractors and Employers of 100+ Employees Must File New EEOC Report by September 30, 2019
EEO-1 Component 2 Report Due by September 30, 2019
All employers that are required to submit an EEO-1 federal report—employers of 100 or more, or federal government contractors and first-tier subcontractors with 50 or more employees and at least $50,000 in federal government contracts—must now also file the newly required Component 2 data report regarding wages for 2017 and 2018. The report must be submitted by September 30, 2019. As with the EEO-1, the Component 2 information can be filed electronically using the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) web portal. While the ten employee categories on the form remain the same, the wage data for each category must be subdivided into twelve different pay ranges, and the reporting made by sex, race, and ethnicity. If you have questions about your data, or wish the forms to have an outside review before filing, you may contact any of Verrill’s employment attorneys.
Need for Data Analysis
Because the EEOC intends to use the comparative wage and salary data to evaluate possible pay inequities based on race, sex, and ethnicity, you should review your data for the same issues prior to filing.
If your data shows significant disparities, the EEOC may ask you to explain the reasons for them. Prior review and evaluation of your data will give you an opportunity to be ahead of any EEOC inquiry in three important ways:
These days, workplace diversity and pay equity are two of the hottest workplace issues after sexual harassment. Knowing that you have a problem and addressing it before the government or a private party sues you will save time and money. Moreover, your self-prompted corrective actions may improve employee relations and workplace culture.
If you have questions on how to assess or address your data, please contact any of Verrill’s employment attorneys.
