BREAKING NEWS: The EEOC will not collect Component 2 pay data after this cycle concludes on Sept. 30, it was announced on Sept. 11.

To date, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) reports it has received Component 2 pay data from 13.4 percent of eligible filers, who have until Sept. 30 to complete their submissions.

eeoc-report-could-be-delayedSept. 30 is the date set by the court that ordered the pay data collection to proceed after the Trump administration put it on permanent hold. Ironically, that is the same day that the pay data initiative expires since the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) initially authorized the collection process only through that date.

Since the authorization is expiring, the agency is planning to post a Notice of Information Collection — Employer Information Report (EEO-1) to gauge employer views on the Component 2 process.

The EEOC also reports that there are some 37,000 eligible filers “who have neither contacted the NORC Component 2 Help Desk, registered for access to the online portal, or submitted data.”

The agency reported it will begin attempting to contact these filers via phone.
