For the last two years, employers subject to EEO-1 reporting had to notate compensation information and submit pay data alongside demographic data. This February, a D.C. district court recently approved the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission’s (EEOC) request to consider its 2017 and 2018 pay data collection complete.

In September 2019, the EEOC announced it would not be seeking compensation data for the 2019 reporting cycle. The EEOC published formal notice on September 12, 2019, containing the reasoning for discontinuing collection of pay data. The EEOC is expected to submit updated EEO-1 filing forms to the Office of Management and Budget. Once the forms are submitted, there will be a 30-day period for public comment on the forms.

As the forms are still pending, it is unclear when the 2019 EEO-1 reporting cycle will begin. Employers should expect more news from the EEOC once the annual filing cycle is announced.
