The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) made public a proposed revision to the Employer Information Report (EEO-1) to include collecting pay data from employers, including federal contractors, with 100 or more employees, including a breakdown of this information by gender, race and ethnicity.

The revisions include:

The EEO-1 report would be used to collect W-2 compensation and hours-worked data by pay band for employers that have 100 or more employees beginning with the 2017 report.

  • The EEO-1 report would be used to collect W-2 compensation and hours-worked data by pay band for employers that have 100 or more employees beginning with the 2017 report
  • The pay data would be grouped in 12 pay bands, at the same pay intervals the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) uses in its Occupational Employment Statistics survey.
  • The new data will assist the EEOC in identifying possible pay discrimination and assist employers in promoting equal pay in their workplaces.

The proposed ruleis expected to become effective for the EEO-1 Report due on September 30, 2017.
