Don’t Forget About the EEO-1 Report

09 Sep Don’t Forget About the EEO-1 Report

In order to comply with the provisions of Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) requires all U.S. employers with 100 or more employees, as well as federal contractors and first-tier subcontractors with 50 or more employees and at least $50,000 in contracts, to file an EEO-1 report that breaks down the racial/ethnic and gender composition of their workforce by specific job categories. 

Please note: If you have 100 or more employees for at least one pay period within the 3rd Quarter (July, August, or September), the EEOC will expect you to file. While full-time and part-time workers are considered “employees” under EEOC standards, those who are not employed directly by the employer, such as independent contractors, are not covered, and should not be counted.  Reports must be filed by September 30th of each year.

Resource Alliance takes care of this annual reporting for our clients.  If you are not partnering with Resource Alliance yet, talk to your payroll/HR team about completing this accurately and on time.
