On March 17, AGC and industry allies called for the Trump administration to review and reject the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission’s (EEOC) expansion of data reporting in the new EEO-1 form. The EEOC’s revisions to the EEO-1 form do not comply with the Paperwork Reduction Act. For example, as a result of EEOC’s changes, the EEO-1 form has been expanded from 180 to 3660 data cells.  By itself, this exponential increase in the amount of solicited data speaks volumes with regard to the burdensome nature of the new EEO-1 form.

As a reminder, the EEOC announced last year that starting March 2018, it will collect summary employee wage and hours-worked data from some employers concerning employee race, sex, gender and ethnicity, among other bases.  This reporting requirement is in addition to Davis-Bacon related information reporting. Under this requirement, certain employers are required to use new EEO-1 form in March 2018, when 2017 data will be reported.  For more AGC information on this new requirement, click here.
