Yesterday, Monday, September 30, 2019, was the deadline for covered employers to submit EEO-1 Component 2 pay data.  Did you miss it?  If yes, the EEOC has announced that it will continue to accept reports.  So if you missed the deadline, you are probably not alone.
According to the EEOC, it has not received enough responses to satisfy a Court order. As we blogged about here, an April Court order mandated that the EEOC collect two years' worth of pay data-known as Component 2.  The Court had set a September 30, 2019 deadline for the agency to obtain it.  According to the Court's order, the Component 2 data collection would not be complete until the percentage of businesses who submit Component 2 data "equals or exceeds the mean percentage of EEO-1 reporters" that turned in EEO-1s in each of the past four years. 
The EEOC has indicated that just under 40% of businesses eligible to submit an EEO-1 report have finished submitting Component 2 data so far.  "So long as the court's order is in effect stating that the collection will not be complete until it reaches what the court has determined to be the target response rate, the EEOC will continue to accept Component 2 data for 2017 and 2018," the EEOC said in its status report.
Need any last minute tips for complying with EEO-1 Component 2 pay-data reporting?  Don't worry-we are here to help.
