What is the EEO-1 report and where can information regarding the report be found?

An Employment Information Report (EEO–1), also known as a Standard Form 100, is filed annually with the EEO-1 Joint Reporting Committee and provides a demographic breakdown of the employer’s work force by race and gender. Standard Form 100 must be filed by covered Federal contractors who:

  • Have 50 or more employees, and
  • Are prime contractors or first–tier subcontractors, and
  • Have a contract, subcontract, or purchase order amounting to $50,000 or more; or
  • Serve as a depository of Government funds in any amount, or is a financial institution which is an issuing and paying agent for U.S. Savings Bonds and Notes.

For additional information, individuals are encouraged to visit EEOC’s website at www.eeoc.gov

What is the EEO–1 "Job Classification Guide"? Where can contractors find a copy?

The EEO–1 Job classification guide, published in 1996, is a pamphlet provided by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) to assist employers in the correct assignment of employees according to the nine EEO–1 categories. The current "Job Classification Guide" for the EEO–1 report can be found by accessing the website for the EEOC.

Will OFCCP request, accept, or use EEO-1 Component 2 data?

OFCCP has reviewed the parameters of the form EEO-1 Component 2 (aggregated employee pay and hours worked) data collection and has determined that it does not find the data necessary to accomplish its mission to ensure that federal contractors and subcontractors are not engaged in unlawful pay discrimination.

The data are not collected at a level of detail that would enable OFCCP to make comparisons among similarly situated employees, as required by the Title VII standards that OFCCP applies in administering and enforcing Executive Order 11246. Given these limitations of the EEO-1 Component 2 data, and the substantial amount of human capital and technical capacity it would require for OFCCP to analyze the data, incorporating EEO-1 Component 2 data into its program is not a prudent use of agency resources. Accordingly, OFCCP will not receive EEO-1 Component 2 data from contractors. OFCCP already receives up-to-date, employee-level pay data from contractors that are selected for compliance evaluations, and it will continue to do so. OFCCP will also continue to receive EEO-1 Component 1 data (number of employees by job category, and by sex, race, and ethnicity) from contractors for purposes of reviewing their compliance with Executive Order 11246 and its implementing regulations, including the reporting requirements at 41 CFR 60-1.7.
