EEO-1 Portal Opening Soon

The world of affirmative action and Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) reporting is ever evolving, and 2023 is no exception. Here is a comprehensive guide to the recent announcements by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) concerning the 2022 EEO-1 report.

EEO-1 Report 2022: Major Announcements

The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) announced the 2022 EEO-1 data collection Portal will open on Tuesday, October 31, 2023. The deadline for employers to file their EEO-1 reports is Tuesday, December 5, 2023. Employers can access the dedicated online portal for this submission at For companies looking for guidance, the updated instruction booklet titled “2022 EEO-1 Component 1 Instruction Booklet” is now available.

What’s New in the 2022 EEO-1 Report?

A significant change coming with the 2022 report is the format. The traditional “Type” reports have been phased out. In its place, the EEOC introduced a Consolidated Report, a Headquarters Report, and Establishment-Level Report(s). These modifications intend to streamline the process and make it more efficient for both the filing companies and the EEOC.

The data snapshot for this filing will focus on a pay period within the fourth quarter of 2022, specifically from October 1 to December 31, 2022.

Another essential change to note is the introduction of a Unique Entity ID from Companies, especially those that are federal contractors, will now use this in lieu of the DUNS number for every establishment.

Upcoming Deadlines and Previous Delays

Filers should be aware that the EEOC plans to release its file upload specifications on September 13, 2023. This tool will be beneficial for those looking to upload multiple reports simultaneously, offering an efficient method to handle bulk data.

It is worth mentioning that the 2022 EEO-1 filing process encountered two delays, one in January and another in June. The EEOC explained that the June delay arose due to a mandatory renewal of the filing documentation. Interestingly, this documentation secured approval for just a year, diverging from the typical three-year approval period. This may indicate EEOC’s commitment to reinstating “Component 2” data collection in 2024.
