Update 2/10/2021:

EEOC is working behind the scenes with their vendor on the new EEO-1 website to be used for the 2021 filing period. The new website will be open for filing sometime in the month of April 2021 for employers to file the 2019 and 2020 EEO-1s.

This week, the EEOC published a notice on the new website for employers to confirm or change the company contact information. This is important because EEOC uses this information to notify employers via letters and emails about updates and requirements for the filing period. The last time this information was updated or confirmed was with the 2018 EEO-1 reporting period. Visit the site soon and complete the Contact Us form, particularly if the company contact has changed since 2018.

Watch this blog for updates to the 2019 and 2020 EEO-1 filing cycles. EEOC promises new and updated information in the coming weeks.


Original Post:

The EEOC announced in a press release that their dedicated website to be used for filing EEO reports will open in April 2021. EEOC delayed filing of the 2019 EEO-1 Component 1 reports, as well as the 2020 EEO-3 and 2020 EEO-5 reports, due to the COVID-19 public health emergency. The EEOC did not announce a due date for the reports. Typically, the EEO-1 reports are due by March 31st of each year for the preceding year’s report.

The precise opening date will be announced via EEOC’s website and on the new website to be used for filing. Filers are encouraged to visit for updates about the data collection. Assistance will be available on the site after it opens, and a Filer Support Team will also be available to respond to requests for assistance. The full schedule for all EEO data collection reports is:

April 2021 2019 and 2020 EEO-1 Component 1 Data Collection (Private Sector Employers)
July 2021 2020 EEO-5 Data Collection (Public Elementary/Secondary School Districts)
August 2021 2020 EEO-3 Data Collection (Local Referral Unions)
October 2021 2021 EEO-4 Data Collection (State/Local Governments)


Please contact your Berkshire consultant if you have questions about the revised filing schedule for 2019 and 2020 EEO-1 reports. As always, we are following developments and will be making announcements as new information becomes available.
