  • EEOC “Secretly” Announces EEO-1 Filing Extension Provision

 

Hey Compliance Warriors!

 

The EEOC has issued a filing extension for employers who do not meet the May 17th deadline.

 

In their FAQs, they say:

 

What happens once the Tuesday, May 17, 2022 deadline passes? Will I still be permitted to submit my 2021 EEO-1 Component 1 Report(s) if I have been unable to do so by the May 17, 2022 published deadline?

 

Yes. Following the May 17, 2022 published deadline, the EEOC will enter the “failure to file” phase. All filers who have not submitted and certified their mandatory 2021 EEO-1 Component 1 Report(s) by the Tuesday, May 17, 2022 published deadline will receive a notice of failure to file instructing them to submit and certify their data AS SOON AS POSSIBLE, and NO LATER THAN TUESDAY, JUNE 21, 2022. This additional time, through Tuesday, June 21st, 2022, will be available to ALL filers who have not submitted and certified their 2021 EEO-1 Component 1 Report(s) by the May 17, 2022 published deadline.

 

Please be advised that AFTER the June 21, 2022 deadline passes, NO additional 2021 EEO-1 Component 1 Reports will be accepted, and eligible filers will be out of compliance with their mandatory 2021 EEO-1 Component 1 filing obligation.

I don’t advise any employer to take advantage of the extra time out of procrastination. But, it’s nice to know you have the extension if you need it.
