On July 14, 2016, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) revised its proposed rule on collecting specific pay data in Employment Information (EEO-1) Reports from employers who have either 100 or more employees, or a federal contract and at least 50 employees. The newly revised proposed rule:

The Commission amended the deadline to file the revised EEO-1 Report due to comments made by employers in the first public comment period that there is insufficient time to budget, develop and implement processes or systems to capture the data. The public may submit comments on the revised proposed update through August 15, 2016.
