EEOC Announces Proposal to
Require Reporting of Pay Data
On January 29, 2016, the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission ("EEOC") announced proposed revisions to the Employer Information Report ("EEO-1") requiring large employers to report pay data. 
Currently, employers subject to the EEO-1 requirements must annually report data about employees' ethnicity, race, and sex by job category. The proposed changes will also require employers, including federal contractors, with 100 or more employees, to provide information related to employees' "W-2 earnings and hours worked." 

NEXT STEPS: The revisions were published in the Federal Register on February 1, 2016, and the comment period ends on April 1, 2016. If implemented, the new rule would go into effect in 2017, with the first new EEO-1 reports due in September, 2017. CLICK HERE to read the published revisions. 

What Should Employers Do to Prepare?
In anticipation of these changes, employers should evaluate the impact these proposed additional reporting requirements may have on their business. In addition, employers may wish to proactively audit their pay policies and practices.
If you have any questions about the proposed EEO-1 revisions or need assistance analyzing how the changes may impact your business, please contact Katherin Nukk-Freeman or the Nukk-Freeman & Cerra, P.C. attorney with whom you normally work.
