EEOC Announces October 31 Opening and December 5 Deadline for 2022 EEO-1 Reports

SESCO Management

  • The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) has announced that October 31, 2023, is the date employers may expect the portal for submitting 2022 EEO-1 Reports to open.
  • The EEOC also set a December 5, 2023, deadline for completion of 2022 EEO-1 Reports.
  • The EEO-1 Report is a federally mandated survey that collects workforce data categorized by race, ethnicity, sex, and job category.
  • Covered employers must usually submit EEO-1 Reports by March 31 each year. For 2022 EEO-1 Reports, however, the EEOC had previously extended the portal’s opening date twice—first until mid-July and then later until mid-fall— before making the most recent announcement.
  • Federal regulations require that all employers in the private sector with 100 or more employees, and federal contractors and subcontractors with 50 or more employees and a federal contract or subcontract amounting to $50,000 or more, file the EEO-1 Report annually.
  • Although the EEOC sends notification letters to employers it knows to be subject to EEO-1 requirements, all covered employers are responsible for obtaining and submitting the necessary information prior to the appropriate deadline. Employers filing EEO-1 Reports for the first time must register to receive login information, a password, and further instructions for filing from the EEOC.
