EEOC Postpones Submission of EEO-1 Data

The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission announced a delay in the collection of Component 1 Data (demographic, not compensation). It is now, “tentatively scheduled to open in Fall of 2023. Updates regarding the 2022 EEO-1 Component 1 Data Collection, including the opening date, will be posted as they become available.”

Why? The EEOC explains they are not seeking to, “change the types of demographic workforce data historically collected by the EEO-1 (i.e., employee data by job category and sex and race or ethnicity). Rather, EEOC seeks OMB approval of measures that streamline and modernize how the current EEO-1 Component 1 workforce demographic data are collected from employers.”
