The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) has officially announced that the 2023 EEO-1 reporting period will open on April 30, 2024. At Employer Flexible, we’re committed to navigating you through the EEO-1 reporting process efficiently and effectively. Here’s everything you need to know about the upcoming EEO-1 reporting requirements.

Who Needs to File the EEO-1 Report?

EEO-1 Reporting is essential for:

  • Large Employers: Any employer with 100 or more employees in the U.S. must file the EEO-1 report. This requirement also extends to companies under common ownership or affiliation that collectively have 100 or more employees.

  • Federal Contractors: Employers with 50 or more employees who are federal prime contractors or first-tier subcontractors, and have contracts totaling $50,000 or more, also need to file.

Understanding who needs to file is the first step in compliance.

What Are the Filing Requirements?

Deadline for Submission: The deadline to submit your EEO-1 report is June 4, 2024. It’s crucial to meet this deadline to comply with federal regulations and avoid potential penalties.

Step-by-Step Guidance: Employer Flexible will provide detailed guidance through each step of the EEO-1 reporting process. If you are an Employer Flexible client, your HR Consultant (HRC) will furnish all the necessary details to ensure your filing is timely and accurate.

What Should You Do Next?

Initial Steps: If you believe you meet the qualifications for EEO-1 Reporting, please contact your HR Consultant or your current HR provider by April 30th. They will provide you with the next steps and ensure you have all the information needed to proceed.

Automated Identification: For Employer Flexible client companies with more than 100 employees already active in our systems, we will automatically identify you as needing to file. If your company is outside our system, you are not a client, or if you have fewer than 100 employees but are a federal contractor, you will need to provide notice to ensure you are recognized as eligible.


EEO-1 Reporting is a critical compliance requirement for eligible employers. If you do not meet the qualifications for filing, no further action is required on your part. For those who do, Employer Flexible is here to assist you every step of the way to ensure that your EEO-1 Reporting is handled smoothly and efficiently.

Stay compliant and stress-free with Employer Flexible as your guide through the EEO-1 Reporting process in 2023!

EEO-1 Reporting Frequently asked Questions (FAQs):

What is the EEO-1 report?

The EEO-1 Report, officially known as the Employer Information Report, is a compliance survey mandated by federal statute and regulations. It requires companies that meet certain criteria to report demographic workforce data, including employee counts by job category, race/ethnicity, and gender. This report is used by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) to enforce federal prohibitions against employment discrimination and discriminatory pay practices.

What is the deadline for EEO-1 reporting?

For the 2023 reporting year, the deadline to submit the EEO-1 Report is June 4, 2024. It’s important to adhere to this deadline to ensure compliance and avoid any potential enforcement actions from the EEOC.

What happens if you don’t file an EEO-1 report?

Failing to file an EEO-1 Report can lead to several consequences. The EEOC can bring a court action against non-compliant employers, potentially resulting in court orders requiring future compliance. Additionally, federal contractors could face a review of their practices and possible impacts on their future contracting opportunities. It’s crucial to file your report on time to avoid these risks.

How do you determine EEO classification?

EEO classifications are determined based on job categories that are broadly defined by the EEOC. These categories include executive/senior-level officials and managers, first/mid-level officials and managers, professionals, technicians, sales workers, administrative support workers, craft workers, operatives, laborers, and service workers. Employers must categorize their employees into these groups based on their job duties and roles within the organization. This classification helps in analyzing employment patterns within companies and across industries.
