Last week the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) announced it finalized the proposal to now include employee pay data in the annual Employer Information Form (EEO-1) submitted to the agency. Private employers and federal contractors with 100 or more employees will have to report employee wage data from employees’ W-2s.
The ostensible rationale is to address discriminatory pay practices.
The EEO-1 report will be due for the first time with pay data on March 31, 2018, and the EEO-1 will be due every March 31 thereafter.
The recently released NAM Labor Study indicates this form change will cost manufacturers “$1.9 Billion with 18 million hours of paperwork over the next ten years.”
