The online portal for private sector employers to submit equal employment opportunity (EEO-1) workforce data from 2021 to the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) was opened on April 12, 2022.
The deadline for submissions is May 17, 2022. This data collection was previously delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
EEO-1 Reporting Background
Mandated under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act, the EEO-1 Report is an annual survey that requires certain employers to submit information about their workforces by race or ethnicity, gender and job categories by March 31 every year. The EEOC uses the collected data to enforce Title VII’s prohibitions against employment discrimination based on race, color, religion, national origin or sex.
Employers Subject to EEO-1 Reporting
In general, a private sector employer is subject to EEO-1 reporting if it:
- Has 100 or more employees;
- Has 15-99 employees and is part of a group of employers with 100 or more employees; or
- Is a federal contractor with 50 or more employees and a contract of $50,000 or more.

Employers subject to EEO-1 reporting requirements should begin submitting 2021 EEO-1 data in the EEO-1 portal and ensure they complete these submissions by May 17, 2022. These employers should also review the EEOC’s home page and website dedicated to EEO data collections for additional information
