Are You Impacted By The New EEO-1 Reporting?
One of the most important forms is the annual EEO-1 where you have to identify the race and gender of your employees by various employment categories. The EEOC uses EEO-1 data to support civil rights enforcement and to analyze employment patterns, such as the representation of female and minority workers within companies. The OFCCP uses the data to determine which company establishments to select for compliance reviews. Both federal agencies are responsible for enforcing federal anti-discrimination laws and the EEO-1 that you will be filing may serve as an indicator of whether either of these agencies should be taking a closer look at your employer's employment practices. The EEO-1 is a key piece of information in determining how well you are complying with anti-discrimination laws before federal auditors decide to take a closer look for themselves. The government compiles the information on the forms and may target an employer for an audit or investigation if the information suggests that you are not in compliance with discrimination laws. Now the government is seeking even more information – your compensation data!
The 90-minute webinar will be conducted by Susan Desmond, an expert with over 30 years of representing management in all areas of labor and employment law. She is a principal with Jackson Lewis PC.
