For over 50 years, the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission’s (EEOC) has required dealerships with more than 100 employees to file annually an Employer Information Report (EEO-1 Survey). The EEO-1 historically has asked for the number of employees by sex, race, ethnicity and job category. Dealerships must also display an “EEO is the Law” poster.
The EEO-1 Survey was expanded recently and is now more complex. Component 1 of EEO-1 still asks for the employee data listed above. The Component 1 EEO-1 Survey data for 2018 was due to the EEOC by May 31, 2019.
The new Component
2 EEO-1 Survey asks for hours worked and W-2 pay information, by category.
On July 15, 2019, the EEOC opened an online portal
through which, by September 30, 2019, covered dealers must submit Component 2
EEO-1 Survey data for 2017 and 2018. Covered dealerships should be reciving
portal system login information from the EEOC via USPS letter and email. The
EEOC offers FAQs
materials to assist with submission of Component 2 data. Lastly, the EEOC
offers help desk assistance at EEOCcompdata@norc.org
or 877.324.6214. Questions can also be directed to NADA Regulatory Affairs
