2022 EEO-1 Component 1 Data Collection Now Open

By Debra Milstein Gardner - Nov 3, 2023 10:47:48 AM - 3 MINS READ

The filing period for the 2022 EEO-1 Component 1 data collection opened on October 31 and all reports must be submitted by December 5, 2023. Private employers with a workforce of over 100 employees and federal contractors with 50 or more employees are required by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) to submit this report using the EEO-1 Component 1 Online Filing System (OFS).

An significant development for this filing period is that multi-establishment filers no longer need to submit separate reports for each non-headquarters establishment, regardless of their size. In addition, filers now have the convenience of submitting requests for assistance, tracking the status of their requests, and terminating requests directly through the user-friendly OFS platform.

The report plays a crucial role in gathering demographic data on employee race, sex, and ethnicity, classified by job category. This information is utilized by the EEOC to investigate charges of employment discrimination and to publish comprehensive reports on workforce demographics. Certain employers, such as local referral unions, state and local governments, and public school systems with their industry-specific reports, are exempt from this reporting requirement.

The mandatory EEO-1 Component 1 report is an essential tool that provides the government with comprehensive employee race, sex, and ethnicity data categorized by job roles. As stated by the agency, "EEO-1 data are used by the EEOC to investigate charges of employment discrimination against employers in private industry and to publish periodic reports on workforce demographics." It is important to note that specific employers, namely local referral unions (EEO-3), state and local governments (EEO-4), and public elementary and secondary school systems and districts (EEO-5), are not obligated to file an EEO-1 report but are required to submit reports specific to their respective industries.

For more specific information, employers may refer to the 2022 EEO-1 Component 1 Data Collection website or the 2022 EEO-1 Component 1 Data Collection Instruction Booklet.




OutSolve can provide assistance to file the EEO-1 Component 1 report. Employers have the flexibility to choose a workforce snapshot period between October and December 2022, allowing them to obtain the most accurate and up-to-date employment data regarding race and gender. It is essential that each job title is correctly aligned with the appropriate EEO-1 category, and if necessary, OutSolve can offer support in assigning these categories. Employers will need an OFS company ID and a unique employer pin to access their company record, unless they are registering for the first time. We are committed to making the reporting process smooth and efficient for all our clients. Contact us if we can provide support in the EEO-1 Component 1 filing process.
