The new rules announced in late 2016 revising the Employer Information EEO-1 report on pay data collection have been placed on hold.
On August 29, 2017, the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) informed the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) that OMB had initiated “a review and immediate stay of the effectiveness of those aspects of the EEO-1 form that were revised on September 29, 2016. These revisions include new requests for data on wages and hours worked from employers with 100 or more employees, and federal contractors with 50 or more employees. EEOC may continue to use the previously approved EEO-1 form to collect data on race/ethnicity and gender during the review and stay.”
The EEOC also announced: “The previously approved EEO-1 form which collects data on race, ethnicity and gender by occupational category will remain in effect. Employers should plan to comply with the earlier approved EEO-1 (Component 1) by the previously set filing date of March 2018.”
