Deadline for EEO-1 Report Moved to October 30, 2015

The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) announced a new deadline for the 2015 EEO-1 reports. Employers now have until October 30, 2015, to file the reports. The original deadline was September 30.

Federal law requires all private employers with 100 or more employees to file the federal EEO-1 report annually. In addition, all federal government contractors and subcontractors with a contract of $50,000 or more and with 50 or more employees must file EEO-1 reports.

The survey requires company employment data to be categorized by race/ethnicity, gender and job category.

Visit the EEOC’s EEO-1 survey website for EEO-1 reference documents, including the sample form, instructions, Q&As, a fact sheet and the EEO-1 Job Classification Guide. The website also lists important changes for the 2015 EEO-1 survey.

Contact the EEO-1 Joint Reporting Committee at 866-392-4647 (toll-free) or via e-mail at if your business:

  • Meets the criteria above but had not received a 2015 EEO-1 notification letter by the end of August 2015;
  • Filed an EEO-1 report in 2014 but did not receive the 2015 EEO-1 notification letter; or
  • Has questions about the EEO-1 survey.
