The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (“EEOC”) recently proposed a revision to the Employer Information Report (“EEO-1”) that would require certain employers to submit aggregate data on employee pay and hours worked.
Employers with 100 or more employees and federal contractors with 50-99 employees already are required to submit the EEO-1 to the EEOC by September 30 of each year. The current version of the EEO-1 requires employers to report the number of individuals they employ by ten job categories, sex, race, and ethnicity. Under the new proposal, beginning with the September 30, 2017 report, private employers and federal contractors with 100 or more employees would also report the number of employees and the employees’ total W-2 earnings for the prior twelve month period within twelve designated pay bands.
For example, an employer would report that it employs 5 Latina women who are Senior Level Officials in the twelfth pay band
