If you're required to file an annual EEO-1 form, don't let the task slip: The EEOC can get tough with companies that shrug off this duty. Example: The EEOC filed a federal lawsuit last month against Menards, a Wisconsin-based home-improvement chain, for failing to file its EEO-1 survey.
The EEO-1 form reports on the number of female and minority employees in the workplace. The EEOC uses those statistics to track the progress of minorities in the workplace. Most private employers with 100 or more employees and certain federal contractors that have 50 or more workers must file the EEO-1 form.
