How can a filer create an account?
Each user will be able to create a unique user account during the registration process. This will be a new account specifically for the 2019 and 2020 EEO-1 Component 1 filing. Once the user account is created, authorized staff can use the Company ID and passcode provided in the advance notification letter to link the company to their account. If a user is authorized to file EEO-1 Component 1 Reports for multiple companies, they can link multiple companies to their user profile.
What should a filer do if a company did not receive (or cannot locate) the advance notification letter that includes the company passcode?
The letters were mailed in April 2021. If a company did not receive the letter by the end of April, check the website for any applicable updates. If the company filed previously and has not received your Company ID and passcode, please use filer support page ‘Contact Us’ Form to contact the EEO-1 Component 1 Filer Support Team. It may be necessary to update the contact information. It will be necessary to verify that the caller is authorized to receive this information. The caller must be an existing point of contact in our records or must provide a letter on company letterhead in electronic PDF format, signed by an authorized company representative authorizing filer access."
What is the EEO-1 Component 1 Report?
Since 1966, the EEOC has required EEO-1 filers to submit demographic data on an annual basis. All private employers that are covered by Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, 42 U.S.C. 2000e, et. seq., as amended (Title VII) and that have 100 or more employees are required to file the EEO-1 Component 1 Report. In addition, the Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) regulations require certain federal contractors to file the EEO-1 Component 1 if they have 50 or more employees and are not exempt as provided for by 41 CFR 60-1.5.

Employers meeting the reporting thresholds have a legal obligation to submit annual workforce data on their employees by race/ethnicity, sex and job category. The data include seven race/ethnicity categories and 10 job categories. EEO-1 Component 1 data are used by the EEOC to investigate charges of employment discrimination against employers and to provide information about the employment status of minorities and women.
What is the EEO-1 Component 1 filing deadline?
The deadline for submitting 2019 and 2020 EEO-1 Component 1 data is Monday, October 25, 2021.
What companies are required to file the EEO-1 Component 1 Report?
The following companies are required to file the EEO-1 Component 1 Report annually:
  1. Private employers who are subject to Title VII of the Civil Rights Act, as amended with 100 or more employees.
  2. Federal government prime contractors or first-tier subcontractors subject to Executive Order 11246, as amended who are not exempt as provided for by 41 CFR 60-1.5, with both 50 or more employees and a prime contract, first-tier subcontract or purchase order amounting to $50,000 or more.
  3. Companies that serve as a depository of Government funds in any amount or as a financial institution which is an issuing and paying agent for U.S. Savings Bonds and Savings Notes and have 50 or more employees.
Why must my company submit and certify its 2019 EEO-1 Component 1 report BEFORE it can submit and certify its 2020 EEO-1 Component 1 report?
Data generated by a company for its 2019 EEO-1 Component 1 report(s) populates data for the 2020 EEO-1 Component 1 report(s). For example, the resulting PDFs generated for a company’s 2019 report(s) will display the company’s employee numbers from the previous year (i.e., 2018). The same holds true for the company’s 2020 report(s). Additionally, several checks and comparisons within the EEO-1 Component 1 Online Filing System are conducted using data from the previous filing year. For example, changes in the number of employees and establishments as well as address changes must be checked against data from the previous year. These checks and comparisons provide additional mechanisms to ensure the technical integrity of the information submitted as well as an additional quality control review of the data.
Can filers use login information from the EEO-1 Component 2 data collection?
No. The account information for the now closed EEO-1 Component 2 data collection cannot be used to access the EEO-1 Component 1 Online Filing System. These are two different data collections, using distinct and separate systems.
How do employers determine an employee’s race/ethnicity?
Self-identification is the preferred method of identifying race/ethnicity information necessary for the EEO-1 Component 1 Report. Employers are required to attempt to allow employees to use self-identification to complete the EEO-1 Component 1 Report.

As to the method of collecting data, the basic principles for ethnic and racial self-identification for purposes of the EEO-1 Component 1 Report are: (1) offer employees the opportunity to self-identify; (2) provide a statement about the voluntary nature of this inquiry for employees.
How do employers classify employees into the job categories listed in the EEO-1 Component 1 Report?

The EEO-1 Component 1 job categories are based on employee skill level, knowledge, and responsibilities. They are designed to reflect common company hierarchies. Employers should select the category which best reflects the job function performed by each employee.

For help, please see the EEO-1 Component 1 Job Classification Guide that maps Standard Occupational Classifications (SOC), occupational titles and 3-digit Census Job Codes to the EEO-1 Component 1 Job Categories.

Detailed descriptions of the job classifications can also be found in the Instruction Booklet.

What are the options for submitting the EEO-1 Component 1 Report?
The preferred and most efficient method of submitting EEO-1 Component 1 Reports is through the EEO-1 Component 1 Online Filing System or as an electronically transmitted data file (TEXT or CSV) via a data file upload. The filer support page on the website also include data file upload instruction similar to those provided in previous years. For a summary of the data employers will need to collect, please see the Fact Sheets on Preparing Data – Single-Establishment , or Preparing Data – Multi-Establishment .
If an employer (i.e., company) has never filed an EEO-1 Component 1 Report before, how can the filer get started?

Visit EEOCdata.org/eeo1, navigate to the registration page and follow the online instructions. After submitting the registration form you will be provided with a Company ID and Passcode. File using the Company ID and passcode that is provided.
