Requirements for an EEO-1 Report


How do I know if I have to file an EEO-1 Report and what are the requirements?


The EEO-1 Report requires some employers to report the number of employees by job category, race, ethnicity and gender. Employers with 50 or more employees, who have government contracts totaling $50,000 or more, or employers without government contracts, who have 100 or more employees, must submit the report on or before September 30 for that year. The report should be based upon the number of employees for any pay period from July through September of that year, and may be filed online (preferred), or by mail.
Changes were made to the report in 2007 redefining several of the reporting categories. Additionally, employers are now asked to have employees “self-report” their status of gender, race, and ethnicity.
