  • The White House Office of Management and Budget (“OMB”) has notified the EEOC that new pay-data collection provisions of the revised EEO-1 form will be suspended in order to review the appropriateness of the revisions under the Paperwork Reduction Act. The revised EEO-1 form would have gone into effect March 31, 2018, and would have required employers with 100 or more employees to report W-2 wage information and total hours worked for all employees by race, ethnicity and sex.

    Though employers are no longer required to supply wage and hour information, the new March 31 EEO-1 reporting deadline will remain in place. Employers may use the latest version of the EEO-1 form, but can leave the salary information portion blank. We will keep you updated if and when any further information is released regarding revising the EEO-1 in the future.
