EEOC Sues 15 Employers for Failure to File EEO-1 Component 1 Workforce Demographic Reports

The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) filed a lawsuit against 15 employers in 10 states for repeatedly failing to submit mandatory EEO-1 Component 1 data reports in prior years, including for reporting years 2021 and 2022. The 15 employers sued by the EEOC include companies in the construction, manufacturing, logistics, retail, restaurant, and janitorial services industries. Federal law requires employers with 100 or more employees to submit workforce data to the EEOC. The data collected includes workforce information by job category and sex, and race/ethnicity. The EEOC uses the workforce demographic data for a variety of purposes including enforcement, analytics and research, and employer self-assessment. A list of the employers sued for failure to file EEO-1 Component 1 data is available on the EEOC’s website here.

Notice of these lawsuits comes as the 2023 EEO-1 Component 1 data collection is underway, with the 2023 reporting cycle having started on April 30, 2024.
