EEO-1 Survey Deadline is Approaching

The annual deadline for the completion of EEO-1 surveys is September 30, 2014.  All employers subject to this requirement should have received (or will shortly receive) the reports from the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (“EEOC”).   EEO-1 reports must be filed by all private employers with 100 or more employees and all federal government contractors or first-tier subcontractors with 50 or more employees and a contract or subcontract valued at $50,000 or more. Private employers with fewer than 100 employees are still subject to this requirement if the company is owned or affiliated with another employer, and both enterprises employ greater than 100 employees.  These reports help the federal government to identify employment data on race/ethnicity, gender and job categories.

The EEOC prefers that employers file the EEO-1 report electronically.  Employers can access the web-based EEO-1 form here: http://www.eeoc.gov/employers/eeo1survey/.  Employers who have previously filled out the survey will also receive a paper copy in the mail.  Instructions for the completion of the survey can be found on the EEOC’s website or attached to the form.

If you have any questions regarding the completion of this report, please contact Patrick W. McGovern, Esq., at 973-535-7129, pmcgovern@nullgenovaburns.com or Allison Gotfried, Esq., at 973-646-3297, agotfried@nullgenovaburns.com.
