After several delays, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (“EEOC”) has announced that it will open data collection for the 2022 EEO-1 Component 1 report on October 31, 2023. All private employers with 100 or more employees and federal contractors with 50 or more employees have until December 5, 2023 to file their annual workforce demographic data, including the number of individuals employed by job category and by sex and race or ethnicity.

Covered employers must submit their data electronically through either manual data entry or the upload of a data file. The redesigned EEO-1 Component 1 Data Collection Instruction Booklet is available HERE. The EEOC has said it anticipates posting the updated 2022 EEO-1 Component 1 Data File Upload Specifications to its website at on September 13, 2023 and opening its online filer help desk on October 31. Businesses with a current federal contract or subcontract worth $150,000 or more also must file their annual VETS-4212 Report detailing their affirmative action efforts in employing veterans by September 30, 2023.

If you need assistance with your EEO-1 or other filing process, please reach out to the NFC Attorney with whom you typically work or call us at 973.665.9100.
