2023 EEO-1 Report ‘Failure to File’ Deadline Is July 9

Hourglass TimeAlthough the June 4 deadline has passed, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) urges required employers who haven’t yet submitted and certified their mandatory EEO-1 Component 1 report to do so as soon as possible — and no later than 8 p.m. Pacific Time (PT) on Tuesday, July 9, 2024.

Once this “Failure to File” deadline passes, employers are considered out of compliance with their filing obligations — and those out of compliance are on the EEOC’s radar: Recently, the commission filed lawsuits against 15 employers in 10 states for repeatedly failing to submit their mandatory reports.

Each year, all private-sector employers with 100 or more employees — and federal contractors with 50 or more employees meeting certain criteria — must file an EEO-1 Component 1 report, which includes workforce demographic data, such as information on the racial/ethnic and gender composition of their workforce by specific job categories. This data is used for a variety of purposes, including enforcement, analytics and research, and employer self-assessment.

Authorized by Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the EEOC has collected this workforce demographic data for nearly 60 years — and can take employers to court for not fulfilling their filing obligations. The EEOC’s recent lawsuits for repeated failure to comply with mandatory federal reporting requirements affect a range of employer industries, including retail, construction, restaurant, manufacturing, logistics and services — demonstrating the federal agency’s commitment to ensuring compliance with the law.

This year, the EEOC collected the 2023 EEO-1 Component 1 reports from April 30, 2024, through June 4, 2024. Although the EEOC has not officially extended the filing deadline, it will accept reports until the “failure to file” deadline of 8 p.m. PT on Tuesday, July 9, 2024. After this, no additional 2023 EEO-1 Component 1 reports will be accepted, and required employers who failed to file will be out of compliance with their mandatory filing obligations.
