EEO-1 Part 2 – Update
This week, the U.S. District Court granted the EEOC’s request for a brief reprieve (until April 3) to provide information to federal contractors about what and when they will need to file the EEO-1 Part 2 pay data report. The judge told the EEOC to spell out how pay data will be collected, when it is due and how employers should format the data. The Department of Justice, arguing for EEOC, claimed EEOC’s systems were not prepared to accept the influx of data, but that they were working hard to modify their systems. For the first time, the Court acknowledged the difficulty employers face, the judge stating “I am mindful of the fact that this is a significant burden…the employers are waiting.” The plaintiffs will have an opportunity to respond to EEOC’s plan no later than April 8.
