Employers will be relieved to know that the EEO-1 Survey opened on March 18, 2019, and currently is receiving only 2018 Component 1 data so far. The window for submitting that data will close on May 31, 2019.
Notably, the federal agency said in a statement that it is "working diligently on next steps" in the aftermath of a District of Columbia federal court order vacating the OMB’s earlier stay on the collection of Component 2 EEO-1 pay data.
OMB stay vacated. In National Women's Law Center v Office of Management and Budget, the court declared that the OMB’s stay of the EEOC’s pay data collection was "illegal." The court found that the OMB’s deficiencies were substantial and that it was unlikely that the government could justify its decision on remand.
Vacating the stay, the court granted summary judgment to the plaintiffs in the lawsuit and ordered that the previous approval of the EEOC’s revised EEO-1 form "shall be in effect."
More info to follow. As to the pay data information required in the Obama-era EEO-1 collection, the EEOC said that it will provide further information "as soon as possible."
