EEO-1 Reports Due

The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) 2018 EEO-1 Survey opened on March 18, 2019. The EEOC Office of Enterprise Data and Analytics’ (OEDA) Employer Data Team has updated the annual notification letters to aid employers with their filing obligations. Beginning with the 2018 EEO-1 Survey, the notification letter will identify both a company number and temporary password for accessing the EEO-1 application. For enhanced security purposes, employers will be required to change their passwords immediately after successfully accessing the application.

The Employer Information EEO-1 report (Standard Form 100) is collected annually under the authority of Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, 42 U.S.C. 2000e, et. seq., as amended. Private employers with 100 or more employees are required to submit the EEO-1 report annually. Federal contractors with 50 or more employees AND a federal contract, subcontract, or purchase order amounting to $50,000 or more are also required to submit the EEO-1 report annually.

The 2018 EEO-1 Survey will close on Friday, May 31, 2019. All reports are required to be submitted and certified by that date. Please note that the employment data used for the 2018 EEO-1 survey must be selected from one pay period in the fourth quarter of calendar year 2018 (i.e., October, November or December 2018).

DOL Budget Update

Did you know? The White House wants to cut the U.S. Department of Labor’s budget by 10%. President Trump’s budget request seeks $10.9 billion for DOL activities in fiscal year 2020, about $1.9 less than FY 2019.

However, a handful of DOL functions would see budget increases.

  • $558 million for the Occupational Safety and Health Administration represents a slight increase
  • $233 million for the Wage and Hour Division to enforce minimum standards for wages and working conditions in U.S. workplaces
  • $3.6 million increase over FY 2019
  • $194 million for the Employee Benefits Security Administration

OT Changes – New Proposal

On March 7, 2019 the Department of Labor announced a proposed rule that would make more than a million more American workers eligible for overtime.

Under currently enforced law, employees with a salary below $455 per week ($23,660 annually) must be paid overtime if they work more than 40 hours per week. Workers making at least this salary level may be eligible for overtime based on their job duties. This salary level was set in 2004.

This proposal would boost the proposed standard salary level to $679 per week (equivalent to $35,308 per year). Above this salary level, eligibility for overtime varies based on job duties.
