EEOC Opens Pay Data Collection Portal

Attention: Employers with over 100 Employees

On July 15, 2019, the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) opened its web-based portal for the collection of pay and hours worked data for calendar years 2017 and 2018. 

If your company employed over 99 employees during the snapshot period in 2017 or 2018, you are required to submit your Component 2 Data by September 30, 2019.

EEOC Opens Portal for 2017 & 2018 Pay Data Collection

As ordered by the court’s recent decision in National Women’s Law Center v. Office of Management and Budget Civil Action No. 17-cv-2458 (D.D.C.), EEO-1 filers must submit both Component 2 data for calendar years 2017 and 2018 by September 30, 2019.

Employers, including federal contractors, are required to submit Component 2 compensation data for:

2017 if they have 100 or more employees during the 2017 workforce snapshot period; and

2018 if they have 100 or more employees during the 2018 workforce snapshot period.

The workforce snapshot period is an employer-selected pay period between October 1 and December 31 of the reporting year. Federal contractors and other private employers with fewer than 100 employees are not required to report Component 2 compensation data.
