You should have an envelope from the EEOC in your in-box. The contents: the 2013 EEO-1 Survey.
It’s the EEOC’s annual workforce diversity questionnaire that must be completed by all private employers with 100 or more employees, as well as federal government contractors that have 50 or more employees and annually do at least $50,000 worth of business with Uncle Sam.
By law, affected employers must file their EEO-1 reports by Sept. 30.
EEO-1 reports provide employment data by race/ethnicity, gender and job categories. The federal government uses the data for research and—more ominously—to help the EEOC target enforcement of Title VII of the Civil Rights Act.
If you haven’t yet received your EEO-1 package, immediately contact the EEO-1 Joint Reporting Committee at (866) 286-6440 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
