On July 15, 2019 the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) opened a Web-based portal for the collection of pay and hours worked data for calendar years 2017 and 2018. The URL for the portal is https://eeoccomp2.norc.org.
As ordered by the court's recent decision in National Women's Law Center, et al., v. Office of Management and Budget, et al., Civil Action No. 17-cv-2458 (D.D.C.), EEO-1 filers must submit Component 2 data for calendar year 2017, in addition to Component 2 data for calendar year 2018, by Sept. 30, 2019.
Employers, including federal contractors, are required to submit Component 2 compensation data for 2017 if they have 100 or more employees during the 2017 workforce snapshot period. Employers, including federal contractors, are required to submit Component 2 compensation data for 2018 if they have 100 or more employees during the 2018 workforce snapshot period. The workforce snapshot period is an employer-selected pay period between October 1 and December 31 of the reporting year. Federal contractors and other private employers with fewer than 100 employees are not required to report Component 2 compensation data.
The EEOC has contracted with NORC at the University of Chicago to conduct the Component 2 EEO-1 Compensation Data Collection for 2017 and 2018.
In addition to the data collection portal available for all filers, a data file upload function and validation process is expected to be available no later than Aug. 15, 2019, as an alternative data collection method for employers who prefer to utilize data file upload capability.
Information regarding the data file upload function is available at https://eeoccomp2.norc.org.
Additional resources for filers, including Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs), Sample Data Collection Form, Instruction Booklet for Filers, User's Guide, Fact Sheet, and more, are available at https://eeoccomp2.norc.org.
