Guidance for filers with an acquisition, spinoff, or merger
The deadline to submit and certify your 2019/2020 EEO-1 Component 1 data HAS BEEN CHANGED. The new filing deadline is NOW Monday, August 23, 2021.
However, we encourage eligible employers to file the required EEO-1 Component 1 report(s) as soon as possible.
For those filers who have contacted the EEO-1 Component 1 Help Desk and are awaiting a response, we ask for your patience as the Filer Support Team works through these requests. We will ensure that all filers will be able to file and that no one will be excluded.
We also ask that filers only contact the EEO-1 Component 1 Help Desk once regarding the same issue. Filers making multiple contacts for the same issue via phone, email, and online inquiry and/or from different email addresses with the same employer are increasing the number of requests into the help desk resulting in further delays.
EEOC-approved data file upload specifications are now available for both single-establishment and multi-establishment filers who wish to upload data through the EEO-1 Component 1 Online Filing System for the 2019/2020 data collection. Both single-establishment and multi-establishment can submit and certify their data now via the upload function in the EEO-1 Component 1 Online Filing System.

Who Must File
Answer the 4 questions below to determine if your company is required to file the EEO-1 Component 1 Report.
The following employers are required to file the EEO-1 Component 1 Report annually:
- Private employers (who are subject to Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, as amended) with 100 or more employees; OR
- Private employers subject to Title VII who have fewer than 100 employees and are owned or affiliated with another company, or there is centralized ownership, control or management (such as central control of personnel policies and labor relations) so that the group legally constitutes a single enterprise, and the entire enterprise employs a total of 100 or more employees.
- Federal contractors who (1) are not exempt as provided for by 41 CFR 60-1.5; (2) have 50 or more employees; (3) are prime contractors or first-tier subcontractors; and (4) have a contract, subcontract, or purchase order amounting to $50,0000 or more; OR
- Federal contractors that serve as depositories of Government funds in any amount; or are financial institutions which are issuing and paying agents for U.S. savings bonds and savings notes.
Only those establishments located in the District of Columbia and the 50 states are required to submit an EEO-1 Component 1 Report. No reports should be filed for establishments in Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands, or other American Protectorates. State and local governments, public primary and secondary school systems, institutions of higher education, American Indian or Alaska Native tribes and tax-exempt private membership clubs other than labor organizations are also exempt from the EEO-1 Component 1 Report. However, non-profits and not for profit organizations are required to file the EEO-1 Component 1 Report.
What will I need?
- Company ID and passcode (provided via U.S. mail for previous filers or at registration for new filers)
- Company EIN, NAICS Codes, and DUNS Number
- Address and EINs of all establishment locations
- Count of all full and part-time employees during the workforce snapshot pay period selected by the employer
- Sex and race/ethnicity of all employees
- Job categories of all employees
Previous filers will receive their company's annual notification letter by U.S. mail. The letter will include your company ID and passcode, which are required to create your company’s account in the new Online Filing System. All companies will need to create an account in the EEO-1 Component 1 Online Filing System.
Eligible companies are required to first file and certify the 2019 EEO-1 Component 1 Report, then file and certify the 2020 EEO-1 Component 1 Report after the 2019 report is submitted.
Companies must file the EEO-1 Component 1 Report for 2019 and 2020 if they were in business and met the filing requirements for that year. In the EEO-1 Component 1 Online Filing System, you will certify your 2019 filing first. If you were not eligible in 2019, you will need to certify that you were ineligible before filing your 2020 EEO-1 report. If you were not eligible in 2020, you will need to file you 2019 EEO-1 report first then certify that you were ineligible in 2020.
