The Employer Information EEO-1 Report is a compliance survey mandated by Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1965 with amendments and administered by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) and the U.S. Department of Labor Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP). The current survey, also referred to as Component 1, requires companies to categorize employment data by race/ethnicity, gender and job category.  

Starting in 2017, in addition to Component 1, employers were required to submit pay data (also known as Component 2) as part of EEO-1 reporting to improve investigations of possible pay discrimination by gender, race or ethnicity.  However, later in 2017 the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) suspended pay-collection provisions (Component 2) included in the EEO-1 revisions.  In 2019, a Federal judge reinstated the revised EEO-1 Component 2 reporting provisions. As a result, the EEOC announced the reinstatement of the revised EEO-1: Pay Data Collection, which requires the collection and submission of 2017 and 2018 pay data (Component 2) by September 30, 2019.

The EEOC posted the Pay Data and Hours requirements in early July and the file layout was posted on July 15.  We have analyzed the EEOC Component 2 requirements and development has started working on the Component 2 requirements.  There are some additional complexities we need to consider for customers who don’t use PeopleSoft Payroll for North America (ex. they use ADP), they need the ability to load in their 3rd party data needed for Component 2 reporting.

 We are planning on posting a position statement (next 7+ days) on what Oracle/PeopleSoft will be delivering for EEOC Component 2.

To follow is a recap of the proposed EEO-1 changes:

Important Notes:

  • Oracle will provide a solution for PeopleSoft Release 9.2 only

  • The EEO-1 report is a Human Resource report, but will require Pay data to populate the report

  • PeopleSoft is planning to deliver a solution that provides an ability to load Pay and Hours worked from Payroll for North America or an external source to generate Component 2 reporting

Oracle will post an updated blog once overall guidance and final specifications of Component 2 data from the EEOC is provided
