Legal Alert: EEOC will be Sending New EEO-1 Passwords

Date   Jul 2, 2013

In preparation for the 2013 EEO-1 survey, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) has announced that all passwords have been reset for security and confidentiality purposes.

Executive Summary:  In preparation for the 2013 EEO-1 survey, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) has announced that all passwords have been reset for security and confidentiality purposes.  The EEOC will send reporting companies notification letters that will contain new passwords.  See http://www.eeoc.gov/employers/eeo1survey/index.cfm

Generally, private employers covered by Title VII with 100 or more employees (subject to certain exclusions) and government contractors with contracts of $50,000 or more and 50 or more employees are required to file an EEO-1 report annually.  The report must be filed with the EEOC's EEO-1 Joint Reporting Committee.  The preferred method for filing the report is the web-based filing system, which requires employers to log into their company database with a Login ID and Password. 

The deadline to file the 2013 EEO-1 is September 30, 2013.
