The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission announced that the 2019 and 2020 EEO-1 Component 1 data collection filing deadline has been extended from July 19 to Monday, Aug. 23, 2021. However, the EEOC encourages eligible employers to file the required EEO-1 Component 1 report(s) as soon as possible. According to the EEO-1 Component 1 website , the EEO-1 Component 1 report collects demographic workforce data, including data by race/ethnicity, sex and job categories, from employers with 100 or more employees and federal contractors with 50 or more employees meeting certain criteria. Resources to assist filers with their submissions are available on a dedicated website for the EEOC’s data collections. Further, the EEOC states that eligible employers that have not received a 2019 and 2020 EEO-1 Component 1 notification letter via U.S. mail should contact the EEOC’s Filer Support Team at FilerSupport@eeocdata.org for assistance. Employers that have received the notification letter may now create user accounts using the company ID and passcode provided therein. More information on EEO-1 Component 1 data and other EEO data collections can be found on the EEOC website .
