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.
As of the date of this blog post, the EEOC has not posted final requirements on data required for transmission to the EEOC for Component 2. Oracle’s policy is to wait for the final publication of legislative requirements and guidelines prior to making software changes.
Oracle recommends that customers have a plan in place in the event the EEOC does not post the requirements in time for Oracle to develop, test and deliver a solution for EEO-1 Component 2 by the September 30 deadline.
To follow is a recap of the proposed EEO-1 changes:
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
