The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), the enforcement arm for workplace discrimination with the authority to investigate, make charges, conduct workplace audits and levy penalties. The EEOC also provides guidance and tools to assist certain Employers to ensure that they do not allow or tolerate workplace discrimination. To that end, Employers obligated to submit workforce data in the form of EEO-1 Reporting. Effective February 2016, the EEOC led by President Barack Obama, established new EEO-1 reporting guidelines to ensure that Employers are accountable for pay equity initiatives. While most agree in theory that men and women should be paid equally for the same job, Employers pushed back on this reporting criteria stating undue burdensome data collection as well as complained about the high cost for Employers to collect the new data.

Based on those factors and other political differences, the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) stopped the EEO-1 pay data reporting as late as August 30, 2017. Although some Employers are thrilled with this “stay of execution”, the suspension is in effect to review and possibly re-introduce the pay equity discussion.

What does this mean for Employers? Well it does not mean that Employers should rest on their laurels. For compliance professionals, it means that the requirements can return therefore, Employers should consider preparing in case pay and compensation data collection is resumed. 

Areas Covered
