There has been a new date set for EE0-1 Pay data reporting. The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) released a brief statement on its website stating employers would be required to report employee pay data by September 30th. Let’s take a look at the details of the immediate reinstatement of revised EE0-1.
According to the EEOC, for 2019, the deadline to submit EE0-1 data on job category, race, sex, and ethnicity of employees from the fourth quarter of 2018 has been extended to May 31st, 2019. Data that includes hours worked and pay information from both 2017 and 2018 (such as race, ethnicity, and sex) will be required by September 30, 2019. For a more detailed explanation of the revised EE0-1 report, visit the EEOC’s website.
What are the reporting requirements?
Because the pay data requirement needs to be filed, the EE0-1 report is essentially divided into two parts. The first section of the report includes all of the employee demographic information your business is used to reporting on. The pre-existing May 31st deadline to report on demographic information has not changed.
The second section is new. The new report section includes information on hours worked as well as employee Form W-2 data by ethnicity, race, and gender. Additionally, employees need to be categorized into one of twelve pay bands, starting at $19,239 to over $208,000 per year. What’s important to keep in mind is that this section is due on September 30th and must include data from 2017 and 2018.
Does this affect my business?
