July 19 is the deadline for filing both your EEO-1 Report for your 2020 workforce data, as well as the 2019 EEO-1 Report which the EEOC delayed because of the pandemic. The EEOC reporting portal is open and ready to receive your Reports. The EEO-1 Report is an opportunity for employers to put their best foot forward demonstrating the strides they are making to eliminate discrimination within their workplaces.  The Report is used by both the EEOC and OFCCP.  The EEOC uses it to measure patterns of workplace discrimination and the federal OFCCP uses it to determine which federal contractors it will audit. If past years are any indication, HR will have questions when it comes to accurately completing the separate 2019 and 2020 Reports, and the requirement to submit two years’ worth of data at one time just adds to the difficulties you’ll face providing the EEOC with accurate information.

Cheryl Behymer and Sheila Willis, attorneys at law, regularly advise clients on matters relating to EEOC and OFCCP compliance. During this informative webinar they will offer step-by-step guidance for accurately completing both your 2019 and 2020 EEO-1 Reports by the July 19 deadline and answer your questions regarding how to prepare the Report and how the EEOC and OFCCP can be expected to use the information you submit. Also, you’ll get insight into the future of the Component 2 pay data report.
