With the ongoing challenges relating to the COVID-19 pandemic, supply chain problems, and worker shortages, in many ways 2021 was as challenging for employers as was 2020. Although employers could be forgiven for wanting to forget about 2021, they should not forget about one 2021 hangover: EEO-1 reporting.
The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission announced in late December that companies with more than 100 employees (and federal contractors with more than 50 employees) can begin filing their EEO-1 reports April 12, 2022 with a tentative deadline of May 17, 2022. Although EEO-1 reporting for 2019 and 2020 was delayed multiple times because of the ongoing pandemic, employers should prepare to provide reports by the tentative May deadline as it is unlikely additional extensions will be issued. McMahon Berger will continue to monitor developments in this area and employers can check the EEOC’s website for updates as to their EEO-1 reporting obligations (https://www.eeocdata.org/eeo1).
