The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission has extended the deadline for filing the 1018 EEO-1 reports. The original deadline was March 31, 2018 (congrats to all of you who made that deadline!!), but the Commission said that they received so many requests for technical assistance that they decided to push the final deadline out to June 1, 2018. The actual number of reports received by the deadline is higher than in previous years, but the requests for assistance was also higher this year. The Commission’s website was updated April 20th with the new date.
One reminder: the following are the EEOC criteria that dictate whether an EEO-1 is necessary:
