The deadline to file and certify the EEO-1 Component 1 Report is May 17, 2022. Private companies with 100 or more employees and federal government contractors with 50 or more employees meeting certain criteria are required to file the EEO-1 Component 1 report of workforce demographics including data by race/ethnicity, sex, and job categories.

What happens if a company is unable to submit the 2021 EEO-1 Component 1 Report(s) by the May 17, 2022 deadline? According to the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission’s FAQs at https://eeocdata.org/pdfs/2021_EEO_1_Component_1_FAQs.pdf, the EEOC’s answer is:

Yes. Following the May 17, 2022 published deadline, the EEOC will enter the “failure to file” phase. All filers who have not submitted and certified their mandatory 2021 EEO-1 Component 1 Report(s) by the Tuesday, May 17, 2022 published deadline will receive a notice of failure to file instructing them to submit and certify their data AS SOON AS POSSIBLE, and NO LATER THAN TUESDAY, JUNE 21, 2022. This additional time, through Tuesday, June 21st, 2022, will be available to ALL filers who have not submitted and certified their 2021 EEO-1 Component 1 Report(s) by the May 17, 2022 published deadline. Please be advised that AFTER the June 21, 2022 deadline passes, NO additional 2021 EEO-1 Component 1 Reports will be accepted, and eligible filers will be out of compliance with their mandatory 2021 EEO-1 Component 1 filing obligation.
