New EEO-1 Requirements

As of September 30, 2007, private employers with 100 or more employees and federal contractors with 50 or more workers must file an EEO-1 annual report with an updated Schedule D. An instructional booklet is posted at the EEOC’s website: http://www.eeoc.gov/eeo1/index.html. You may file on-line through the EEO-1 filing system or as an electronically transmitted data file. Paper EEO-1 forms will be generated upon request only

The EEOC strongly endorses self-identification of race and ethnicity, rather than visual identification. Although not mandatory for the September 2007 report, surveying employees using new race and ethnic categories is encouraged. This may be accomplished by providing a page on a private, secure, confidential, internal web site or providing notice to employees requesting anonymous self-identification by memorandum with their pay checks.
