The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) has proposed a substantive revision to the Employer Information Report (EEO-1) to include collecting pay data from employers, including federal contractors, with more than 100 employees. The Agency says that the data will assist the agency in identifying possible pay discrimination and assist employers in promoting equal pay in their workplaces. EEO-1 data provides the federal government with workforce profiles from private sector employers by race, ethnicity, sex, and job category. This proposal would add aggregate data on pay ranges and hours worked to the information collected, beginning with the September 2017 report.
The proposed revision is available for inspection on the Federal Register website. Public commentary is open until April 1, 2016.
