The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission announced in a court filing that it is delaying the deadline to Sept. 30, 2019, for employers to submit EEO-1 survey data for 2018.
However, in response to a recent judicial order, EEOC stated its intention to collect, for the first time, data on wages and hours worked — which would significantly expand the amount of data that employers would be required to report. The Obama administration had sought to collect these data points before the effort was halted by the Trump administration.
Earlier last week, the American Bankers Association joined other industry trade groups in urging the Senate to confirm Janet Dhillon to be a member of the EEOC. Dhillon’s confirmation would result in a quorum being present at the EEOC, strengthening the agency’s ability to modify or rescind the expanded EEO-1 data fields.
