EEO-1 Component 1 Data Collection

The EEO-1 Component 1 report is a mandatory annual data collection that requires all private sector employers with 100 or more employees, and federal contractors with 50 or more employees meeting certain criteria, to submit demographic workforce data, including data by race/ethnicity, sex and job categories.  The filing by eligible employers of the EEO-1 Component 1 Report is required under section 709(c) of Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, as amended, 42 U.S.C. § 2000e-8(c), and 29 CFR 1602.7-.14 and 41 CFR 60-1.7(a).  


The 2021 EEO-1 Component 1 data collection is OPEN. 

The published deadline to submit and certify the 2021 EEO-1 Component 1 Report(s) was Tuesday, May 17, 2022.  All filers who have not submitted and certified their mandatory 2021 EEO-1 Component 1 Report(s) by the above May 17, 2022 deadline will have through Tuesday, June 21, 2022 to submit and certify their 2021 EEO-1 Component 1 Report(s).

Please submit and certify your company’s 2021 EEO-1 Component 1 Report(s) as soon as possible and no later than Tuesday, June 21, 2022 in order to comply with the EEOC’s mandatory filing requirements. Once the June 21, 2022 deadline passes, no additional 2021 EEO-1 Component 1 Reports will be accepted, and eligible filers will be out of compliance with their mandatory 2021 EEO-1 Component 1 filing obligation.

If you have already submitted a request to the Filer Support Team and are awaiting a response, please be advised the Filer Support Team is in the process of addressing those requests. We ask that filers only contact the Filer Support Team once regarding the same issue.

Filers should visit the dedicated EEO-1 Component 1 website at to access the EEO-1 Component 1 Online Filing System and to find the latest filing updates and helpful resource materials (e.g., Instruction Booklet, User’s Guide, FAQs, Fact Sheets).  Filers needing additional assistance may learn how to access the Filer Support Team Message Center on the EEO-1 Component 1 website at
