Fact Sheet for EEO-1 Survey Filers

This fact sheet provides a list of important deadlines and reminders in order for your company to successfully complete the EEO-1 Survey process.

  1. The EEO-1 Report is to be submitted and certified by Friday, September 30th, 2016.
  2. Returning filers: please be advised that companies are able to obtain and reset passwords.
  3. When completing the EEO-1, use data from only one pay period and include both part-time and full-time employees. The survey does not require applicant data.
  4. Companies must provide Employer Identification Numbers for all establishment locations.
  5. The preferred method of identification for the race/ethnicity categorization of employment data is self-identification. Employers are required to attempt to allow employees to use self-identification to complete the EEO-1. If any employee declines to self-identify, employers may consult with employee-provided information when on-boarded or the employer may use visual observation.
  6. Single-establishment companies file a type/1 report only.
  7. Multi-establishment companies have to file (at least "three" applicable) report types:
    1. Consolidated Report (type 2)-must include all employees of the company categorized by race, gender and job category.
    2. Headquarters Report (type 3)-must include all employees that work at or report to the main office site of the company. Employment data must be categorized by race, gender and job category. A separate EEO-1 report is required for the Headquarters establishment even if there are fewer than 50 employees that work there. Sites with more than 50 employees-type 4 report also called an establishment report must be submitted for each location with 50 or more employees. Employment data must be categorized by race, gender, and job category.
    3. Sites with fewer than 50 employees-
      1. Type 8-employment data for each location must be categorized by race, gender, and job category.

        OR

        Type 6-establishment list-includes establishment name, address and total number of employees for each location with less than 50 employees**

    **NOTE: If you choose to create a Type 6 data record/report for each establishment employing fewer than 50 employees, you MUST manually enter data categorized by race, gender and job category into the Type 2 - Consolidated Report and include all company employees. If you choose to create a Type 8 report for each establishment employing fewer than 50 employees, you must enter employment data categorized by race, gender and job category for each Type 8 report. The employment data entered for each such establishment will automatically populate the Type 2 - Consolidated Report.

  8. It is strongly encouraged that companies have one individual serve as the EEO-1 contact person and another person serve as the certifying official.
  9. When you finish your EEO-1, please do not forget to save a .pdf copy for your company's records.
  10. Certification of the EEO-1 report is mandatory. Without certifying your report, your company will receive a violation notice.
  11. Online filing is the preferred method of submission for the EEO-1 Report. All data are encrypted, ensuring your security.
