    Topic: EEO-1 Pay Data Update 

    Workers depend on the EEOC to advance opportunity and freedom from workplace discrimination. Although much progress has been made in the past 50 years, pay disparities continue to be a problem in the American workplace. The EEOC sees pay discrimination in the work we do across the country. Since the creation of the President's Equal Pay Task Force in 2010, the EEOC has investigated tens of thousands of charges of pay discrimination, and through our enforcement efforts, we have obtained more than $85 million in monetary relief for those who have faced pay discrimination based on sex. Additionally, studies show that significant pay gaps exist in the U.S. workforce linked to sex, race, and ethnicity. Even when controlling for other factors, workplace discrimination is an important contributing factor to these pay gaps.

    Pay discrimination has significant consequences for America's families. Eliminating the pay gap would reduce the number of working poor, improve the financial security of many families, and strengthen the nation's economy.

    Robust and efficient enforcement along with voluntary efforts by employers to examine pay for potential discriminatory disparities are both critical to achieve greater compliance. Collecting pay data will enable the EEOC and OFCCP to more effectively tackle pay discrimination.

    • Pay Data will Inform and Strengthen the EEOC's and OFCCP's Enforcement Efforts. The EEOC and OFCCP have long used EEO-1 data to identify trends, inform investigations, and focus resources.

     

    •  Additional Data is Necessary to Help Close the Pay Gap: The collection of summary pay data will provide valuable insight into trends and other dimensions of the pay gap across industries and occupations. The EEOC will periodically publish reports on pay disparities by sex, race, ethnicity, industry, and occupation to provide comparative data.

     

    • Support Employer Efforts to Self-Assess Compensation Practices: The comparative data provided in periodic EEOC reports will help employers better evaluate their pay policies and practices and ensure that they are in compliance with relevant state and federal laws.

     

    Join us as we learn from Brenda about the revised proposal and the requirements that have a revised reporting due date of March 31, 2018.
