THOMAS HOUSTON can assist your company in meeting your reporting requirements by interpreting, preparing, and electronically submitting your data. Our teams will assist you in reviewing your data to ensure that all employees are reported in the correct location report. The deadline date for these reports is no longer September 30, 2017.

EEO-1 Reporting

The Employer Information Report (EEO-1), otherwise known as the EEO-1 Report, is required to be filed with the US Equal Employment Opportunity Commission's EEO-1 Joint Reporting Committee. Notification letters are mailed to employers beginning in July of each year. The preferred method for completing the EEO-1 reports is the web-based filing system. All companies should receive their EEO-1 filing materials by mail no later than mid-August of each year. These dates for receipt of the EEO-1 filing materials may change in 2017 as the newly revised deadline date for filing submission is March 31, 2018. This deadline change was a result of the September 29, 2016, approval to include W-2 Pay Data in the 2017 EEO-1 Report.

UPDATE! As of August 29, 2017, the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) issued a memorandum informing the EEOC that the OMB was initiating a review and immediate stay of the effectiveness of the W-2 Pay Data portion of the EEO-1 report. Specifically, the immediate stay was on the portion of the EEO-1 report that required the reporting of aggregate W-2 (Box 1) income and hours-worked data by employers (including federal contractors) with 100 or more employees. The OMB did not stay the portion of the EEO-1 report that requires filers to submit data on the race, ethnicity and gender of their workers, by job category (EEO-1 “Component 1”). The EEOC will continue to collect EEO-1 Component 1 data from all filers during the OMB’s review and stay. The data collection period for the EEO-1 Reporting will be October 1 – December 31, 2017. The EEO-1 Report filing submission deadline will remain March 31, 2018.

VETS-4212 Reporting

The VETS-4212 has simplified the way employers report on the number of employees and new hires who are protected veterans* covered by VEVRAA. The VETS-4212 form requires employers to enter four columns of data plus the maximum and minimum number of employees at the specific location.

UPDATE! The filing deadline for the VETS-4212 Report has been extended from September 30, 2017 to November 15, 2017 as a courtesy to employers due to Hurricanes Harvey and Irma.

* Disabled veterans, recently separated veterans, active duty wartime or campaign badge veterans, and Armed Forces service medal veterans.
