By Kamer Zucker Abbott

July 10, 2019

As we previously wrote, a federal lawsuit has resulted in the reinstatement of the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission’s collection of employee pay data from EEO-1 filers through a revised EEO-1 Report. This controversial requirement, which had been stayed, has been reinstituted by the court hearing the case of National Women's Law Center v. OMB. Although the Department of Justice has appealed the court’s ruling, that appeal does not impact employers’ obligations to file pay data (“Component 2 Data”) by the court’s September 30th deadline.

Due to the court’s order, EEO-1 filers are required to submit Component 2 Data for calendar years 2017 and 2018 by September 30, 2019. The EEOC has published the following information on its website:

The EEOC expects a web-based portal for the collection of 2017 and 2018 Component 2 data will be active by mid-July 2019. The URL for the portal will be Please note that the portal is not yet open. The EEOC will be notifying filers prior to the launch of the portal and providing FAQs and other materials to assist filers with the submission of Component 2 data.

The EEOC expects that a helpdesk will be fully operational starting on approximately June 17, 2019. The contact information for the helpdesk is as follows:

Toll Free: (877) 324-6214

Although the portal is not yet open, employers can now obtain the EEOC’s reference materials for this new EEO-1 requirement at: On this website you will find frequently asked questions as well as sample forms, instruction booklets, and user guides (under the “More Info” tab). If you have questions or need additional assistance with filing Component 2 Data, please contact a KZA attorney.
