As the EEOC continues to identify employers violating equal employment opportunities in the workplace, here are some tips to help stay out of the spotlight:

  • Stay up to date on changing legislation.
  • Train HR supervisors on the federal and state EEO laws relevant to the state they are operating in.
  • Educate employees on anti-harassment practices and be sure policies are being adopted across your entire organization.
  • Ensure that you have data processes in place that will provide accurate information to address any EEOC enforcement actions.
What is EEO Reporting?
EEO reporting is a compliance survey mandated by federal statute and regulations. The survey requires company employment data to be categorized by race/ethnicity, gender and job category. Additional reporting requirements including payroll and hours data have recently been mandated, and will be due for the first time ever on September 30, 2019.
Who is subject to EEO reporting?

All companies and organizations (i.e., non-profit, religious, federal contractors, private and public entities, etc.) that meet the 100-employee threshold must report their Comp 2 data. 

  • The 100-employee threshold for reporting is for the employer as a whole, after totaling employees based at the headquarters and at all locations, or establishments. Refer below for multi-establishment guidelines.
  • There are no exception or exemptions for employer’s compliance with the EEO Comp 2 report.
What data gets reported on the EEO-1 Form?

EEO reporting has traditionally consisted of employee demographic data such as race/ethnicity, gender, and job category. These requirements are still in place, and have recently been expanded.

The new EEOC rules for reporting Component 2 data require employers to accurately track and report the number of hours their employees work, identify their employees’ earnings over a 12-month period, and classify employees as one of 12 pay bands established by the EEOC.

How does EEO data get reported?

The EEOC requires that Component 2 EEO-1 reports be submitted via the Component 2 EEO-1 Online Filing System as an uploaded CSV data file no later than September 30, 2019. 

Certification of the Component 2 EEO-1 report is mandatory, meaning that employers must verify that the data they are submitting is true and accurate, as well as in the required reporting format specified by the EEOC.

If an employer fails to properly certify their report, their company will receive a notification of failure to file letter.

What is the deadline for EEO component 2 reporting?
The deadline for an employer to file for component 2 reporting is September 30th, 2019. Employers will be required to include pay and hours data for both the 2017 and 2018 reporting years.
"We have a very complicated attendance policy at our Kentucky distillery. Points North worked hand-in-hand with us to develop an integrated solution. Monthly attendance reporting prior to this solution took us eight hours. Today it is a matter of running the attendance report."

"The Attendance Advisor has saved time. I do not miss the manual recording of the attendance. Attendance records are updated earlier than before. Therefore, the warnings are issued to employees sooner. I like everything about the program." I would not want to ever go back to the old way."
