WASHINGTON -- The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) will hold a public hearing on Proposed EEO-1 Report amendments on Wednesday, November 20, beginning at 9:30 a.m. (Eastern Time), at agency headquarters, 131 M Street, N.E. Washington, D.C. The hearing will be open to public observation.

Pursuant to section 709(c) of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the Commission is holding a public hearing to discuss the proposed changes to the EEO-1 Report.

In the Notice, the EEOC stated that it was planning to seek approval under the Paperwork Reduction Act to continue administering Component 1 of the EEO-1 survey, which the EEOC has sponsored for many years.

The EEOC also said that it is not planning to continue using the EEO-1 Report to collect Component 2 pay data information, which the Commission originally added to the EEO-1 in 2016. The Commission will hear from the following panelists during the hearing:

  • Lynn Clements, Director, Regulatory Affairs, Berkshire Associates
  • Michael Eastman, Senior Vice President, Policy and Assistant General Counsel, Center for Workplace Compliance
