Dear Private Employer:

The 2015 EEO-1 Online Filing System is OPEN. This letter includes important information about the 2015 EEO-1 survey.


Beginning with the 2015 EEO-1 filing, companies must get their passwords online. You will need the email that was used to file last year's report to receive the 2015 password. If your contact person has changed, you must update the email contact in the system by sending a change request on company letterhead with the name, title, phone number and email address of the new contact person at your company. Your new contact will receive an email with login and password once your change request has been submitted. If you have any questions about this process you may contact the EEOC at 1-877-392-4647 or

You now have the ability to retrieve forgotten passwords online too. In addition, companies MAY NOT include multiple records with the same address and the same NAICS code. Multiple records with the same address and same NAICS code must either change the NAICS code to one that more accurately describes the location's major business activity, or consolidate these records into ONE record. You may seek technical guidance at Finally, Employer Identification numbers will be required for all locations.
