EEO-1 filing deadline extended to October 30
The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission has extended the deadline for EEO-1 Report submissions from September 30 to October 30, 2015. The EEO-1 Report is an annual survey that must be filled out by all private employers with 100 or more employees, and federal government contractors or first-tier subcontractors with 50 or more employees and a contract/subcontract of $50,000 or more. The preferred method for completing the EEO-1 Report is the web-based online filing system. Several changes were implemented in 2015: (1) employers are now able to obtain and reset their passwords; (2) company locations with same address and same NAICS code must consolidate those locations into one record; and (3) the requirement to provide the Employer Identification Number (EIN) for each establishment location will be more carefully monitored.
