The Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) has released a Fact Sheet, FAQs and Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) requiring federal contractors and subcontractors to submit an annual Equal Pay Report on employee compensation.

The NPRM would amend the regulations for Executive Order 11246, Equal Employment Opportunity, by adding a requirement that certain federal contractors and subcontractors supplement their Employer Information Report (EEO-1 Report) with summary information on compensation paid to employees, as contained in the Form W-2 Wage and Tax Statement (W-2) forms, by sex, race, ethnicity, and specified job categories, as well as other relevant data points such as hours worked, and the number of employees.

Covered employers would submit electronically three pieces of information related to employee compensation:

  • The total number of employees by EEO-1 job category by race, ethnicity and sex;
  • Total W-2 wages, defined as the total W-2 wages for all workers in the job category by race, ethnicity and sex;
  • Total hours worked, defined as the number of hours worked by all employees in the job category by race, ethnicity and sex.

Federal contractors and subcontractors can show compliance with mandatory posting and notice requirements for multiple federal rules by displaying our All-On-One Federal Contracts Poster.
