On Aug. 29, 2017, the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) issued a memorandum prohibiting the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) from requiring employers to use the new, revised EEO-1 form for 2017 reporting requirements while the new form undergoes OMB review.
This means that all employers subject to the EEO-1 reporting requirements must use the same EEO-1 form as used in previous years when submitting information for 2017. Employers must comply with EEO-1 reporting requirements for the 2017 calendar year by March 31, 2018.
All employers should use the previously approved, unrevised EEO-1 form when submitting information for 2017.
Private employers with 100 or more employees and federal contractors and subcontractors with 50 or more employees no longer have to include summary pay and hours of work information when reporting for 2017 but should watch for additional information from the EEOC regarding reporting requirements that may affect them for the 2018 calendar year.
