Private Sector Employers Must Provide Workforce Data to EEOC by Sept. 30
WASHINGTON -- The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) announced today that it has completed its mailing of the 2013 EEO-1 survey Notification Letters. The EEO-1 is an annual survey that requires all private employers with 100 or more employees, and federal government contractors or first-tier subcontractors with 50 or more employees and a contract or subcontract of $50,000 or more, to file the EEO-1 report. The filing of the EEO-1 report is not voluntary, but is required by federal law. The filing deadline this year is Sept. 30, 2013.
The EEO-1 report provides valuable employment data by race/ethnicity, gender and job categories, and is used by researchers, private attorneys and human resource staff as well as in the EEOC's enforcement of Title VII of the Civil Rights Act.
Employers who meet the criteria listed above and have not received the 2013 EEO-1 Notification Letter by the end of July 2013 should immediately contact the EEO-1 Joint Reporting Committee at 866-286-6440 (toll-free) or e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org. They may also contact the EEO-1 Joint Reporting Committee if the company filed the EEO-1 report in 2012 and they did not receive the 2013 EEO-1 Notification Letter. If anyone has any questions about the EEO-1 survey, they should contact the EEO-1 Joint Reporting Committee at 866-286-6440 (toll-free) or by e-mail at email@example.com.
"This year we are stressing efforts to make it easier for employers to file by enhancing our website and developing more technical assistance guidance," pointed out Deidre M. Flippen, director of the EEOC's Office of Research, Information and Planning (ORIP). "We are prepared to assist employers meet the Sept. 30 deadline."
