Tick, Tock…EEO-1 Reports are Due September 30, 2010
Tick, tock. Time is running out for filing EEO-1 reports which must be filed no later than September 30, 2010. The EEO-1 report is a government form that requires employers to describe their workforce in terms of job categories, ethnicities, races, and genders. The purpose of the EEO-1 report is to provide federal agencies with a way that they can see various indications of discrimination and take remedial actions if necessary.
Private employers with 100 or more employees, as well as private employers that have federal government contracts of $50,000 or more and 50 or more employees, must file an EEO-1 report every year with the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission’s EEO-1 Joint Reporting Committee.
Covered employers who fail to file their EEO-1 report can incur severe penalties including large punitive fines and losing government contracts.
