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.
