According to Westat’s announcement there are approximately 90,000 businesses who use the EEO-1 site annually to provide data on to the EEOC. There are also approximately 7,100 biennial data collection reports for unions, state and local government and schools – known as the EEO-3, EEO-4 and EEO-5 reports.
No changes or announcements have been made about the due dates for the 2019 and 2020 EEO-1 data collections. The most recent announcement from EEOC has a target date for filing the reports of March 2021. In that same announcement, EEOC states that the data to be filed will be Component 1 data only – no compensation or hours worked.
