Each year, certain companies must submit employment data categorized by race/ethnicity, gender and job category in the EEO-1 report. Specifically, the EEO-1 report is required to be filed by organizations that meet the following criteria:

  • Subject to Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, as amended, with 100 or more employees; or
  • Subject to Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, as amended, with fewer than 100 employees if the company is owned by or corporately affiliated with another company and the entire enterprise employs a total of 100 or more employees; or
  • Federal government prime contractors or first-tier subcontractors subject to Executive Order 11246, as amended, with 50 or more employees and a prime contract or first-tier subcontract amounting to $50,000 or more.


This year, the deadline to submit the EEO-1 has been extended to May 31, 2019, from the original deadline of March 31. The opening of the EEO-1 Online Filing Application, the preferred method of submitting the reports, has also been postponed until early March 2019.
