Notice of Proposed Changes to the EEO-1 Report to Collect Pay Data from Certain Employers

The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) has proposed a revision to the Employer Information Report (EEO-1) to include collecting pay data from employers, including federal contractors, with more than 100 employees. This new data will assist the agency in identifying possible pay discrimination and assist employers in promoting equal pay in their workplaces.

This proposal would add aggregate data on pay ranges and hours worked to the EEO-1 information collected, beginning with the September 2017 report. Proposed changes were published in the Federal Register on February 1, 2016.  Members of the public have 60 days from that date, April 1, 2016, to submit comments. 

A public hearing has been scheduled for March 16, 2016 to gather information and hear public comment on the proposal.

Below are links to materials that will help explain what EEOC is doing:
