Pay Data Due to Government By Sept. 30
The deadline is looming for employers with 100 or more workers to file pay data with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. EEO-1 Component 2 data is due by Sept. 30.
Although a court appeal to stop the data collection is pending, it doesn't stop the reporting requirement for this year. Employers must electronically file for all employees pay and hours worked categorized by gender, race/ethnicity and job type for calendar years 2017 and 2018 .
According to the EEOC, the wage data is to come from the annual W-2 Box 1. Hours are the actual hours recorded for non-exempt workers. For exempt workers, employers can either use their actual hours if these were recorded or use 40 hours a week for full-timers and 20 hours for part-timers.
The EEOC has a detailed FAQ page that answers many of the usual questions employers may have, as well as some more unexpected ones such as how to report data for non-binary gender employees.
Filing is to be done through the Component 2 portal either by a direct data upload or by completing the online form.
