The EEO-1 Form is a report filed with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), mandated by Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1967, as amended by the Equal Employment Opportunity Act of 1972. The Act mandates that employers report on the racial/ethnic and gender composition of their workforce by specific job categories.
All employers located in the 50 states and the District of Columbia who have at least 100 employees are required to file EEO-1 Survey annually with the EEOC. Federal government contractors and first-tier subcontractors with 50 or more employees and $50,000 contracts must file as well. The US EEOC has opened the report and is ready for employers to start filing them. Important to note that reports must be filed by September 30th each year. Employment figures from any pay period in the third quarter, July through September, may be used.
If employers have filed an EEO-1 form in previous years, information on the form is pre-filled from the previous year and you can enter through the login.
First-time filers can find a simple registration form online at the EEOC web site at this link. When this is submitted, the EEOC will issue a company number to the company, and filers can log into the system.
