EEO-1 Update: EEOC Component 2 Online Filing System Opens on Schedule
On July 15, 2019, the EEOC opened its online filing system for the submission of EEO-1 Component 2 pay data. Employers that are required to file EEO-1 reports can now submit pay data broken down by job category, pay band, race, ethnicity, and sex for the calendar years 2017 and 2018. This submission is due by September 30, 2019.
As of now, the filing system only allows the manual entry of the Component 2 data by employers. The EEOC previously reported that it is working to finalize a data file upload function for the Component 2 reports. That function should be available to employers by August 15, 2019.
To access the EEO-1 Component 2 filing system, employers will need log-in information that EEOC mailed and e-mailed to them on July 12, 2019 and July 15, 2019. The EEOC has also posted a 44-page user guide to assist employers in preparing the Component 2 report.
Polsinelli will continue to monitor developments on the Component 2 data submissions and has staff available to assist employers with their filings.
