Equal Employment Opportunity Report is a compliance survey mandated by federal statute and regulations. The survey requires company employment data to be categorized by race/ethnicity, gender and job category. All companies who have had 100 or more employees throughout the year must submit an EEO-1 Report by September 30th of each year.
The EEO-1 report is a compliance survey mandated by federal regulations that require companies to obtain employment data, categorized by race/ethnicity, gender, and job category. This employment data must be pulled from one pay period in either July, August, or September of the current survey year.
The EEO-1 report replaced the former Employer Information Report in 2007. The federal government analyzes EEO-1 Report data to protect the civil rights of workers and to examine employment patterns and representation. EEO-1 data can reveal employers who are likely to exhibit patterns of discrimination and shows what is happening at individual facilities. Based on the EEO-1 data, the government may decide to evaluate a company regarding its compliance with equal opportunity employment laws.
The EEOC does not release the EEO-1 data to the public or any other entity or individual, except for individuals working with EEOC to analyze the data or perform company evaluations. It is illegal for any Commission employee to release information about any EEO-1 report to any unauthorized person.
Single-establishment companies are defined as those who do business at only one physical address. These companies are only required to submit one EEO-1 data record/report per year – a Type 1 EEO-1 Report.
Multi-establishment companies are those who do business at two or more physical addresses. Unlike a single-establishment company, multi-establishments are required to submit a separate report for the headquarters, a separate report for each establishment with 50 or more employees, a separate report for each establishment with fewer than 50 employees, and a consolidated report that includes all employees. These reports are listed as follows:
How many EEO-1 data records/reports is a single-establishment company required to submit?
A single-establishment company is required to submit only one EEO-1 data report - a Type 1 EEO-1 Report.

Multi-establishment companies are required to submit the following types of EEO-1 data reports:
Type 2 - Consolidated Report (Required) - The Consolidated Report must include all employees of the company categorized by race, gender and job category.
Type 3 - Headquarters Report (Required) - The Headquarters Report must include employees working at the main office site of the company and those employees that work from home that report to the corporate office. Employment data must be categorized by race, gender and job category. A separate EEO-1 report for the headquarters establishment is required even if there are fewer than 50 employees working at the headquarters establishment.
Type 4 - Establishment Report - A separate EEO-1 Type 4 report must be submitted for each physical establishment with 50 or more employees. Employment data must be categorized by race, gender and job category.
Type 8 - Establishment Report - A separate EEO-1 report must be submitted for each establishment employing fewer than 50 employees. Like the Type 4 - Establishment Report, Type 8 report employment data must also be categorized by race, gender and job category.
Type 6 - Establishment List - The establishment name, complete address and total number of employees must be provided for each physical location where fewer than 50 employees are working;
NOTE: If you choose to create a Type 6 data report for each establishment employing fewer than 50 employees, you MUST manually enter data categorized by race, gender and job category to the Type 2 - Consolidated Report to include all company employees. If you choose to create a Type 8 report for each establishment employing fewer than 50 employees, you must enter employment data categorized by race, gender and job category for each Type 8 report. The employment data entered for each such establishment will automatically populate the Type 2 - Consolidated Report
Companies should file their EEO-1 Reports online through the EEOC website.
