In accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act (PRA), the U. S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) proposes a revision to an employer form to include collecting pay data from employers. The current Employer Information Report (EEO-1) collects data about employees’ ethnicity, race, and sex, by job category for employers with 100 or more employees, or federal contractors with 50 or more employees and a federal contract of $50,000 or more. Starting in 2017, filers with 100 or more employees (both private industry and Federal contractor) would submit new data on employees’ aggregate W-2 earnings and hours worked. In this notice, the EEOC solicits public comment on the utility and burden of collecting pay and hours-worked data through the EEO-1 data collection process.
Comments are due to the EEOC by April 1, 2016.
