As you may know, the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission is now requiring private employers and federal contractors to file a report that identifies the breakdown of their employees on the basis of job titles, ethnicity, race and gender. This report, called the Employer Information Report (EEO-1), will be required for companies with more than a certain number of employees. And the September 30 filing deadline is quickly approaching. The question is—are you ready?

We promise it’s not as complicated as it seems. Here you’ll figure out if you need to file, and how to do it.

Does my company need to file?

If you’re a private employer…
Does your company have at least 100 people, and are you subject to Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964? (If yes, you need to file.)

If you’re a federal contractor…

  1. Do you have at least 50 employees who each make at least $10,000?
  2. Do you have a federal contract of at least $50,000, serve as a depository of government funds, or work for a financial institution that sells U.S. Savings Bonds and Notes?

(If both are yes, you need to file.)

What do I need to report?

If your business only has one location…
File a Standard 100 Form.

If your business has multiple locations…
File a separate report for each branch with at least 50 employees. (You’ll also need to file a consolidate report that includes all employees who work at branches with less than 50 employees.)

How does my company file?
You can access the report here. When filing, you can use any payroll period during 3rd quarter as the snapshot that’s filed in the EEO-1, must be between July 1 and September 30, 2010.

This blog post is only a summary. Check out this page on the EEOC’s website for full details.
