EEOC sent emails on Leap Day – February 29, 2020. The site is still not open for filing, therefore there will be a new deadline date for filing the 2019 EEO-1 reports. However, the agency did not state what the date would be. The statement reads:
U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission
The 2019 EEO-1 survey is not yet opened. The EEOC is currently in the process of seeking approval under the Paperwork Reduction Act (PRA) to collect the EEO-1 survey for 2019, 2020, and 2021. The EEOC is seeking to collect Component 1 of the survey and to discontinue the collection of Component 2 pay data. See EEO-1 60-Day PRA Notice at https://www.federalregister.gov/documents/2019/09/12/2019-19767/agency-information-collection-activities-existing-collection. The opening of the collection, as well as the new deadline date, will be announced by posting a notice on the EEOC home page and sending a notification letter to eligible EEO-1 filers. When the survey opens, the EEOC will provide online resources to assist filers with their submissions and the EEOC's helpdesk will be available to respond to filer inquiries and to provide additional filing assistance (including, for example, guidance on processing mergers and acquisitions and other corporate changes).
The notification letter referenced above could be sent to the company contact person by email or U.S. Mail or both. Be sure that your company contact person is up to date. If the contact person has changed since the 2018 EEO-1 (Component 1 reports) were filed, notify the EEOC of the change and provide the information for the new contact person. Refer to the process shown below from the EEO-1 website found at this link EEO-1 Contact changes.
Company Contact Changes
If your EEO-1 contact person has changed, please submit a letter on company letterhead signed by an authorized company representative, indicating the new contact's name, title, phone number and email address to the Employer Data Team at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please remember to include your company number (if known) in your request.
