HR Tip of the Week: EEO Data Collection Delayed Due to COVID-19
The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) will delay the anticipated opening of the 2019 EEO-1 Component 1 data collection and the 2020 EEO-3 and EEO-5 data collections because of COVID-19. The EEOC expects to begin collecting data for 2019 and 2020 EEO-1 Component 1 in March 2021, and 2020 EEO-3 and EEO-5 in January 2021. The EEOC will notify filers of the precise date the surveys will open as soon as it is available.
Filers of the EEO-1, EEO-3 and EEO-5, which include private sector employers, local referral unions, and public elementary and secondary school districts, are dealing with unique and urgent issues. Delaying the collections until 2021 will ensure that EEO filers are better positioned to provide accurate, valid and reliable data in a timely manner.
The EEOC advances opportunity in the workplace by enforcing federal laws prohibiting employment discrimination. More information is available at www.eeoc.gov.
