The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) has proposed a new rule that would require employers with more than 100 employees to provide employee pay data to the federal government, including employee ethnicity, race, and gender information, by job category. The purpose of the proposed rule is to help enforce equal pays laws. If implemented as proposed,  covered employers will have to report the required data beginning in 2017 on a revised Employer Information (EEO-1) Report (see this sample of a revised EEO-1). The EEOC is accepting comments on the proposed rule until April 1, 2016. Should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to reach out to VolkBell’s HR Department.
