As most of you are aware, a U.S. District Judge mandated the EEOC reinstate the compensation and hours worked portions of the EEO-1 Report, referred to as Component 2 “Pay Data,” resulting from a lawsuit filed against the OMB. Over the past couple of weeks Kairos has been monitoring EEOC’s website for concrete information regarding the collection of Component 2 pay data. An announcement was supposed to be posted on their website on April 29, as well as an email notifying each filing official for companies that file EEO-1 reports annually.

The unknown
This is a fluid situation and the EEOC has not released the format of the final Component 2 submission. If the Joint Reporting Committee stays true to what was originally proposed, companies will be reporting W-2 wages and hours worked.

Kairos is keeping an eye out for information directly from the Joint Reporting Committee. We have been reading and seeing lots of speculation. As soon concrete information is released from EEOC, we will notify you so you can be prepared.

There is a to-be-published document, dated May 3, on the Federal Register stating they will be collecting pay data for 2017 and 2018 by September 30, but it does not list any format or content specifics.

The known
The 2018 EEO-1 portal is now open to file your Component 1 Data. This is the standard report filed annually which currently does not require Component 2 (pay data and hours worked). The deadline to file is May 31, 2019.
