EEO-1 filing deadline extended to October 30
The EEO-1 Joint Reporting Committee has extended the deadline for all EEO-1 Report Filers from September 30 to October 30, the EEOC has announced. The Employer Information Report EEO-1, otherwise known as the EEO-1 Report, is required to be filed with the EEOC and must be submitted and certified by October 30 at the latest.
Changes. Several changes were implemented in the 2015 survey:
- Employers are now able to obtain and reset their passwords;
- Company locations with same address and same NAICS code must consolidate those locations into one record; and
- The requirement to provide the Employer Identification Number (EIN) for each establishment location will be more carefully monitored.
Filing. The preferred method for completing the EEO-1 report is the web-based online filing system, the EEOC stated. Data is transferred over the Internet using encryption, ensuring employer privacy. Online filing requires users to log into their company’s database with a login ID contained in the annual Notification Letter, a password obtained from the login screen, and the company contact’s email address.
Employers that filed the EEO-1 report for the 2014 reporting period should already have received the 2015 EEO-1 notification letter by mail no later than the end of August 2015.
