On October 31, 2023, the 2022 EEO-1 Component 1 data collection will open along with the EEO-1 online Filer Support Message Center (aka filer help desk) to assist filers with questions about the 2022 collection. 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.
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.
The deadline to file the 2022 EEO-1 Component 1 report 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.
Don’t forget! Beginning November 1, 2023, all employers will need to use the new Form I-9 with a version date of “(Rev. 08/01/23) to comply with employment eligibility verification responsibilities. Beginning November 1, 2023, employers may be subject to penalties if they use the older form.
