EEO-1 Filing Deadline Update

by Jason Reep, CAE, SHRM-SCP, SPHR, President
Published June 30, 2021

The EEOC announced that the deadline to file EEO-1 Reports has been extended again.  The new deadline is Monday, August 23, 2021 (the previously extended deadline was July 19, 2021).


The EEO-1 Report is a required annual report for:

                    Private employers who are subject to Title VII of the Civil Rights Act with 100 or more employees.

                    Private employers subject to Title VII affiliated through common ownership and/or centralized management with other entities in an enterprise with a total employment of 100 or more.

                    Federal government prime contractors or first-tier subcontractors subject to Executive Order 11246, as amended who are not exempt as provided for by 41 CFR 60-1.5, with both 50 or more employees and a prime contract or first-tier subcontract amounting to $50,000 or more.

                    Employers that serve as a depository of Government funds in any amount or as a financial institution which is an issuing and paying agent for U.S. Savings Bonds and Savings Notes and have 50 or more employees.


Several important reminders about this report would include:

                    This year’s reporting will be for 2019 and 2020 EEO-1 data.

                    Reporting will be only “Component 1” data – the traditional race and sex forms (there is no “Component 2” this year – hours worked and wages).

                    Filers should go to to file.
