On July 14, 2016, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) published a slightly revised proposed rule on W-2 wage reporting requirements on the annual EEO-1 form for companies with 100-plus employees.

This past winter the EEOC published a proposed rule that added wage reporting to the existing EEO-1 requirement for data reporting for each job category based on race, sex and ethnicity. The latest proposal changes the submission deadline from Sept. 30 of the reporting year to March 31 of the next year. It also sets forth the requirement that wage data cover the entire reporting year through Dec. 31.

The new proposal has a 30-day commentary window and provides various mechanisms for submitting comments. Please refer to the proposed rule for those methods.
