  • The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission announced on September 29, 2016 that it will begin collecting summary pay data beginning in March 2018 as part of the newly-issued, revised EEO-1 survey form.

    As we previously discussed in our July 2016 E-Update and January 29, 2016 E-lert, the current EEO-1 form requires employers to provide information regarding the race, ethnicity, sex of their workforce, in 10 job categories. The revised form adds the requirement to provide aggregated data on pay and hours worked, broken down into 12 pay bands across the 10 job categories, by the same racial, ethnic, and sex groups.

    There will be no EEO-1 submission required in 2017. The first submission will occur in March 2018. Employers with more than 100 employees, including federal contractors and subcontractors, will submit both the workplace demographic information and the summary pay data. Federal contractors and subcontractors with 50-99 employees will submit the demographic data only.

    In addition to the revised form, the EEOC has also issued an updated Small Business Fact Sheet and Questions and Answers. The EEOC will also be holding webinars on October 20 and 26 to explain the new form. More information can be obtained from the webpage on the new EEO-1 survey.
