Abstract: Section 709(c) of Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, as amended, 42 U.S.C. 2000e8(c), requires employers to make and keep records relevant to a determination of whether unlawful employment practices have been or are being committed, to preserve such records and to produce reports as the Commission prescribes by regulation or order. Accordingly, the EEOC issued regulations prescribing the EEO1 reporting requirement. Employers in the private sector with 100 or more employees and some Federal contractors with 50 or more employees have been required to submit EEO1 reports annually since 1966. The individual reports are confidential. EEO1 data is used by EEOC to investigate charges of employment discrimination against employers in private industry and to provide information about the employment status of minorities and women. The data is shared with the Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP), U.S. Department of Labor, and several other Federal agencies. Pursuant to Sec. 709(d) of Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, as amended, EEO1 data is also shared with State and local Fair Employment Practices Agencies (FEPAs).
Burden Statement: The estimated number of respondents included in
the annual EEO1 survey is 45,000 private employers. The estimated
number of establishmentbased responses per reporting company is
between three and four EEO1 reports annually. The annual number of
responses is approximately 170,000. The form is estimated to impose
599,000 burden hours annually. In order to help reduce survey burden,
respondents are encouraged to report data electronically whenever possible.
