WASHINGTON (July 23, 2013) — The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) said July 22 that it has completed its mailing of an employment survey that all private employers with 100 or more workers, as well as certain smaller federal contractors, are required by federal law to fill out.
The EEOC said private employers with at least 100 employees and federal contractors or first-tier subcontractors with 50 or more employees and a contract with or subcontract of $50,000 have until Sept. 30 to respond to the agency's 2013 EEO-1 survey notification letters.
The EEOC said the EEO-1 report provides "valuable employment data by race/ethnicity, gender and job categories and is used by researchers, private attorneys and human resource staff as well as in the EEOC's enforcement of Title VII of the Civil Rights Act."
The agency said employers who are required to respond to the survey and have not received the notification letter by the end of this month should immediately contact the EEO-1 Joint Reporting Committee at 866-286-6440 (toll-free) or email at [email protected] They may also contact the EEO-1 Joint Reporting Committee if the company filed the EEO-1 report in 2012 and they did not receive the 2013 EEO-1 Notification Letter or if they have any questions about the EEO-1 survey.
EEO-1 reference documents, including a sample form, instructions, questions and answers, a fact sheet and the EEO-1 job classification guide, are available by clicking here.
