EEOC issues guidance on pay data reporting requirement

The EEOC has concluded that the deadline for collecting pay data should be extended to September 30, 2019, but employers still need to submit their 2018 “Component 1” EEO-1 data by May 31, 2019. It is possible the EEOC could further delay the pay data deadline, but based on its report to the court, the EEOC is forging ahead. Consequently, employers should begin compiling their pay data information now.

OSHA’s final rule in 2016 extended the range of the walking and working surface standard for general industry and added a fall protection standard for general industry. In doing so, OSHA recognized that many general industry workers face comparable fall hazards as those in construction.
