AGC Joins EEOC EEO-1 Litigation

On August 19, the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) filed a brief in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the DC Circuit seeking to overturn the district court’s decision from March that reinstated the EEOC’s revised EEO-1 Component 2 form. On August 26, AGC—with the help of its Construction Advocacy Fund—joined 13 other associations on an amici brief that explains to the court the problems employers have with the new EEO-1 form; a narrative that was not included in the parties’ briefs.

Currently, the court has yet to schedule a date to hear the appeal and is doubtful to do so before the end of the month since the DOJ never filed a request for expedition. Eligible contractors should continue to plan to submit EEO-1 Component 2 pay data by the September 30th deadline if they have not done so already. More information and resources can be found here.
