“Failure to File” Window Began May 17, Regardless of EEO-1 Filing Extension

Although the deadline for filing your EEO-1 reports has already passed, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) is allowing late submissions through June 21. This shouldn’t be considered a grace period, as this enters the “failure to file” phase, as stated in their FAQ on the reporting.

Employers with 100 or more employees and federal contractors with 50 or more employees should have submitted their EEO-1 Component 1 by May 17, 2022. The report requires employers to break down their employee demographics by race/ethnicity, age and gender to provide a snapshot of diversity amongst U.S. employers. The memo released by EEOC suggests employers who haven’t already filed should do so as soon as possible, but no later than June 21. They also make it clear that businesses required to report should not expect future deadline extensions or clemency on these reports. The EEO-1 Component 1 reports for the 2021 year will not be accepted after June 21, 2022.
