Check your mail! The EEOC has sent out notification letters alerting large employers that they must complete their 2015 EEO-1 surveys. The EEO-1 is an annual survey that all private employers with 100 or more employees are required to fill out.
“The filing of the EEO-1 report is not voluntary, and is required by federal law,” notes an EEOC statement.
The filing deadline is Sept. 30.
In addition to large private-sector employers, federal government contractors or first-tier subcontractors with 50 or more employees and contracts or subcontracts worth $50,000 or more must also complete EEO-1 surveys.
The EEO-1 is an electronic survey that captures employment data by race/ethnicity, gender and job categories. The EEOC uses it to aid in enforcement of Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. Learn more at www.eeoc.gov/eeo1survey.
If you have not yet received an EEO-1 notification letter, call the EEO-1 Joint Reporting Committee at (877) 392-4647 or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
