EEOC Would Add Pay Data to EEO-1 Report

Today’s Federal Register contains a proposed rule by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission calling for the collection of pay data through the EEO-1 report.

As drafted, the proposed rule would revise the current report to collect W-2 compensation and hours-worked data by pay band for employers with 100 or more employees beginning with the 2017 report. According to the EEOC, the additional data will help it identify possible pay discrimination and help employers promote equal pay in their workplaces.

The proposed rule includes a 60-day comment period, which ends April 1. Because the changes would amend the EEO-1 report, the EEOC will hold a public hearing at a time to be determined. View the proposed rule in the Federal Register here.
