The EEO-1 Form (aka the Employer Information Report) is a government form requiring many employers to provide a count of their employees by job category and then by ethnicity, race and gender. The EEO-1 report is submitted to both the EEOC and the Department of Labor, Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP).
All employers with 100 or more employees and all federal government contractors and first-tier subcontractors with 50 or more employees with $50,000+ contracts must file EEO-1 Form.
The EEO-1 report must be filed annually with the EEOC by September 30. Employment data must be used from one one payroll period during the third quarter of the current year.
The EEOC uses the data to support civil rights enforcement. The EEOC also uses the data to analyze employment patterns, such as the representation of female and minority workers within companies, industries, or regions. The OFCCP uses EEO-1 data to determine which employer facilities to select for compliance evaluations.
