When the EEOC’s online reporting portal opened on March 18, it was still unclear whether the new reporting requirements would be included for the 2018 report and if so, when this data would be due.
As a reminder, the new reporting requirements center around submitting information about employee pay data so that trends concerning gender pay inequity can be spotted and addressed. As most employers should be aware, this has become a hot topic in employment law (gender pay equity issues) and many laws are either being proposed or passed to address this concern: The House recently passed the Paycheck Fairness Act, numerous states have enacted equal pay and salary history laws, and the EEOC has included pay equity as a strategic enforcement priority since 2013.
What the EEOC proposed on April 3rd is that employers have until September 30, 2019, to submit employee pay data as part of their annual 2018 EEO-1 report (otherwise known as Component 2 of the EEO-1 report). The US District Court still needs to “bless” this with a court order, but it is looking as though the dates that employers should be aware for the 2018 EEO-1 report are as follows:
The deadline for Component 1 of the EEO-1 report remains May 31, 2019.
The proposed deadline for Component 2 of the EEO-1 report is September 30, 2019 (pending court approval).
