On September 12, 2019, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission announced its intention to suspend the collection of pay data information on employers’ annual EEO-1 forms for years 2019, 2020 and 2021. The EEOC explained that it intends to review the burden on employers of collecting and reporting pay data compared to the utility of the data to the EEOC’s enforcement programs, in light of revised estimates of the burden on employers of collecting this data as well as its review of the 2017 and 2018 pay data information that is currently being collected. The notice does not affect employers’ current obligation to submit 2017 and 2018 pay data information by September 30, 2019.
