2022 EEO-1 Data Collection Now Open

October 10, 2023

At the end of October, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) opened the 2022 Employer Information Report (EEO-1) Component 1 data collection application. It was originally scheduled to open in mid-July, however, the EEOC delayed the deadline as it worked to complete a mandatory renewal of the data collection by the Office of Management and Budget.

The new deadline to file the 2022 EEO-1 Component 1 report is Dec. 5, 2023.  

What Does the EEO-1 Report Entail?   

The EEO-1 report is used to collect annual data on specific information related to equal employment opportunities (EEO), including race/ethnicity, sex and job categories. The data collected is used for a variety of purposes and is shared with other federal agencies to avoid duplication of efforts and to reduce the burden on employers. All data submitted is kept confidential by the EEOC unless the company chooses to voluntarily disclose it.   

Employers using a third-party organization to prepare and file their EEO-1 reports are still responsible for ensuring reports are filed timely. 

Who is Required to File?   

Four types of companies are required to file an EEO-1 report, including:   

  1. All private employers with 100 or more employees. 
  2. All federal contractors and first-tier subcontractors with 50 or more employees. 
  3. All financial institutions/government depositories with 50 or more employees.   
  4. Any company with fewer than 100 employees but associated with another company or parent company where the entire enterprise employs 100 or more employees. 

Employers who operate in one location, as one establishment, are referred to as “single-establishment” employers and are obliged to file a single EEO-1 report. Employers who operate as more than one establishment are referred to as “multi-establishment” employers. A “multi-establishment employer” must file one report for each of the following:  

  • Company’s headquarters   
  • Each establishment with 50 or more employees  

The online Filer Support Message Center will also be available on Oct. 31, 2023, to assist filers with any inquiries they may have.
