For you, we have a treat in this post in the form of ways to make it a whole lot easier. On the other hand, if you’re new to EEO-1 reporting, you probably have a lot of questions! We’ll dive into the nitty-gritty for both EEO-1 reporting veterans and newbies today. Ready for it?

Top 5 EEO-1 Reporting General FAQs

Let’s start off with all the questions, shall we?

What is an EEO-1 data report?

It’s reporting executed by the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission to track demographic information on the American workforce.

What data is included in the EEO-1 data report?

The following fields are a sampling of the data included in the report:

  • Age
  • Gender
  • Job Category
  • Race/ Ethnicity

What types of companies are required to file an EEO-1 data report?

EEO-1 reporting is required for businesses with 100 employees and federal contractors with 50 or more employees. Non-profits aren’t exempt. Higher education institutions, tribal nations, and private tax-exempt membership clubs aren’t required to submit an EEO-1 data report.

Why is EEO-1 data report accuracy important?

First and foremost, if you submit false statements on your report, there are penalties, including fines and/or imprisonment. These reports are of the utmost importance because they are used during investigations of discrimination, as well as research.

Plus, if you do not submit, while there aren’t monetary penalties, you can be held in contempt by the government and lose contracts in the case of federal contractors. You can get detailed info from the source here.
