All private employers who are subject to Title VII and have at least 100 employees must file the Employer Information Report (“EEO-1 Report”). The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (“EEOC”) requires that the EEO-1 Report must be filed by September 30, 2013. In addition, private employers who have fewer than 100 employees, but are owned or affiliated with one or more other companies, or who have centralized control or management with other companies, such that the group of companies is a single enterprise may also have to file the EEO-1 Report. Where such an enterprise employs at least 100 employees, the company must file an EEO-1 Report. Most federal contractors and first-tier subcontractors are also required to file an EEO-1 Report.
The EEO-1 Report requires the disclosure of various types of company information, including federal contractor status, and employment data by job category, race/ethnicity, and gender. The EEOC prefers that employers file the EEO-1 Report online using the EEOC’s website. For more information, click here to access the EEOC’s website about EEO-1 Reports.
