Web-based Portal for Component 2 Data Expected by Mid-July
The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) recently announced that it expects a web-based portal for the reinstated collection of 2017 and 2018 EEO-1 Component 2 data will be active by mid-July 2019. The URL for the portal will be https://eeoccomp2.norc.org. Please note that the portal is not yet open. The EEOC will be notifying filers prior to the launch of the portal and providing FAQs and other materials to assist filers with the submission of Component 2 data. Recently, AGC provided a free WebEd for members —entitled “Critical EEO-1 Survey Reporting Requirements Update.” Playback for the WebEd—and the accompanying power point presentation—can be found here.
The EEOC also expects that a helpdesk will be fully operational starting on approximately June 17, 2019. The contact information for the helpdesk is as follows:
- Email: EEOCcompdata@norc.org
- Toll Free: (877) 324-6214
This update follows the recent DC District Court decision ordering the EEOC to collect two years’ worth of worker pay data from applicable employers as part of the annual EEO-1 survey. The EEO-1 is an annual survey that requires all private employers with 100 or more employees and federal government contractors or first-tier subcontractors with 50 or more employees and a federal contract, sub¬contract or purchase order amounting to $50,000 or more to file the EEO-1 report. The traditional EEO-1 report (“Component 1”) requires employers to tally employment data by race/ethnicity, gender and job categories. The reinstated “Component 2” of the report requires employers to query their databases for W-2 pay data and FLSA hours worked information, even though individual pay data is not actually reported to the EEOC. It is expected that only employers with 100 or more employees will be required to submit component 2, regardless of federal contract. The filing of the EEO-1 report is not voluntary and is required by federal law.
