2023 EEO-1 Reporting to Open on April 30

It’s been only a few short months since the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) finished collecting employers’ 2022 EEO-1 Component 1 reports, but it’s already time for employers to start preparing for the next round.

The 2023 EEO-1 Component 1 data collection will open on Tuesday, April 30, 2024, and the deadline to file is Tuesday, June 4, 2024.

The EEO-1 Component 1 report is required for all private sector employers with 100 or more employees, as well as federal contractors with 50 or more employees meeting certain criteria. These employers must submit workforce demographic data that includes information on the racial/ethnic and gender composition of their workforce by specific job categories.

The EEO-1 Component 1 online Filer Support Message Center — their version of a filer help desk — will also be available on Tuesday, April 30, 2024, to assist filers with any questions they may have regarding the 2023 collection.

Employers can find 2023 EEO-1 Component 1 data collection updates as they become available on the EEO-1 website. The EEOC 2023 Instruction Booklet is available now and the 2023 EEO-1 Component 1 Data File Upload Specifications were expected to be available shortly.

The instruction booklet consolidates FAQs, fact sheets, and additional eligibility and reporting requirements information for employers to use as they prepare their reports.

Employers must file their information through the EEO-1 Component 1 Online Filing System (OFS), either through manual data entry or data file upload. The 2023 EEO-1 Component 1 Data File Upload Specifications will have the information for employers to ensure their 2023 data file is accurately processed by the online filing system.

Remember, once the data collection period opens, employers have until Tuesday, June 4, 2024, to submit their reports!
