In a September 27, 2019 filing in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) revealed that with the September 30, 2019 filing deadline looming, only 39.7% of eligible filers had submitted the required EEO-1 Component 2 pay data. With this percentage falling far short of the 72.7% target set by the Court, the EEOC announced that the portal would remain open for submissions so long as the court order is in effect until the target for submissions has been achieved.
All covered employers who have not yet complied are advised to complete their submissions as soon as possible. Although the portal will remain open beyond the initially publicized deadline, it is unknown how much additional time will ultimately be provided. For more information, please review our previous alerts here and here for additional information and guidance on eligibility and filing.
