EEOC Proposes Addition of Pay Data to Annual EEO-1 Reports

The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) issued a proposed revision to the Employer Information Report (EEO-1) to include collecting pay data from employers, including federal contractors, with more than 100 employees. The new pay data would provide EEOC and the Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs in the Department of Labor with insight into pay disparities across industries and occupations, and would strengthen federal efforts to combat discrimination.

EEO-1 data provides the federal government with workforce profiles from private sector employers by race, ethnicity, sex and job category. This proposal would add aggregate data on pay ranges and hours worked to the information collected, beginning with the September 2017 report. Public comments may be submitted on the proposed revision either online or via mail by April 1, 2016. Written comments should be mailed to Bernadette Wilson, Acting Executive Officer, Executive Secretariat, Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, 131 M Street NE, Washington, DC 20507.
