EEO-1: Federal Agencies Given April 3 Deadline for Employer Pay Data Update

If you’ve been wondering about how, what, and when to file your EEO-1 Survey for this year, you are not alone. Today, March 19, Judge Tanya S. Chutkan of the U.S. District Court gave EEOC and OMB an April 3, 2019 deadline to inform employers on whether they’ll have to turn over employer pay data via the EEO-1 filing. 

As previously reported by DCI, Judge Chutkan ordered the EEOC’s pay data collection back into effect during the case Nat'l Women's Law Center v. OMB.  

On March 18th, the EEO-1 Survey opened, and EEOC posted this statement referencing the ruling:

The EEOC is working diligently on next steps in the wake of the court's order in National Women's Law Center, et al., v. Office of Management and Budget, et al., Civil Action No. 17-cv-2458 (TSC), which vacated the OMB stay on collection of Component 2 EEO-1 pay data. The EEOC will provide further information as soon as possible. (Read the full statement here.)

The Institute for Workplace Equality previously reached out to Judge Chutkan requesting clarification on whether the collection of this pay data is to go forward this year or for a future date. According to Bloomberg Law, the Office of Management and Budget will provide guidance on the timeline for the pay data collection, whether it will be required before May 31, and additional guidelines for how the information should be submitted by April 3rd.

Currently, the EEO-1 filing portal is open for companies to file their reports; however, it does not include a data collection for pay data. The deadline for the EEO-1 filing is May 31, 2019.

DCI will provide additional updates as the story develops.
