The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) has announced that 2022 EEO-1 Component 1 data collection opens on October 31, 2023. The EEO-1 Component 1 report is a mandatory filing required of all private sector employers with 100 or more employees, and federal contractors and subcontractors with 50 or more employees meeting certain criteria.

The deadline to file EEO-1 reports is December 5, 2023. Employers should visit the EEO-1 Component 1 website for the latest filing updates and to find additional information including the Instruction Booklet. There will also be a Filer Support Message Center available when reporting opens.

Changes for Multi-Establishment Employers
The biggest change for 2022 EEO-1 data collection is that multi-establishment employers (those with more than one location) will no longer be required to file separate “types” of reports (e.g., “Type 4” or “Type 8”) based on the size of each of their non-headquarters locations. Instead, they’ll use the new “Establishment-Level Report” to report data for each of their non-headquarters locations, regardless of headcount.

Additionally, the Consolidated Report will now auto-generate and be auto-populated with data from the Headquarters Report and each Establishment-Level report. However, employers are still responsible for ensuring that the data in that report, including the total employee count, is accurate.

We’ve created a handy guide to answer many of the most common questions about the EEO-1 report. You can find it on the platform by searching for “EEO-1 Mini-Guide.”
