EEOC Plans to Collect Pay Data from Private Employers and Federal Contractors
February 10, 2016 | Strategic Insights for Health System
Starting in 2017, the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) will require employers, including federal contractors, with more than 100 employees to provide summary pay data by gender, race, and ethnicity, according to a proposal published in the February 1, 2016 Federal Register. EEOC intends to revise the Employer Information Report (EEO-1) to require employers to provide aggregate data on pay ranges and hours worked. The commission provides a sample of its revised form on its website. Private employers and federal contractors submit the form every year by September 30. The current form collects information about the number of individuals employed by job category and by race, ethnicity, and sex.
