One day before the September 30 deadline for the 2016 EEO-1 filing season, the EEOC put out a press release announcing that changes to the EEO-1 report have now been finalized. The changes were initially proposed in February, and have since undergone two public comment periods, with minor updates resulting in each.
Some notable changes:
Employers who have not yet filed their 2016 EEO-1 reports should send an email with their company number to E1.EXTENSIONS@EEOC.GOV immediately to request a 30-day extension. No extensions will be granted after October 30th.
