EEO-1 2021 Filing Delayed Until April 2022

EEOC will be delaying the start of the 2021 EEO-1 data collection until April 2022. An announcement was posted on December 8, 2021 to both the current and former EEO-1 pages indicating that the data collection will open April 12, 2022.

The filing deadline has not been announced, however EEOC indicates they will post updates to the website as they are available. As a reminder, the expected filing deadline was March 31, 2022.  

Although the announcement does not provide a reason for the filing delay, we do know that there were several changes with the filing process this year that could impact the 2021 filing.  Not only did EEOC roll out a new filing portal, but they collected two years at once (2019 and 2020) in the most recent collection due to the COVID-19 health crisis. These filings experienced a myriad of delays, with the final deadline extending into October 2021.  

Also of note, much of the EEO-1 website is now locked down. The Filer Support help desk is no longer accepting new requests for assistance and will not resume support until “immediately prior to the opening of the 2021 EEO-1 Component 1 data collection.” Employers can still log in to download reports, however all resources, such as FAQs and instruction booklet, are not currently available. 

DCI will provide updates as we learn more.
