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.
- Private employers who are subject to Title VII of the Civil Rights Act, as amended with 100 or more employees.
- 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 contractor or first-tier subcontract amounting to $50,000 or more.
- 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.
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.
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.
