All companies who have had 100 or more employees throughout the year must submit an EEO-1 Report by September 30th of each year.
The EEO-1 report is a compliance survey mandated by federal regulations that requires companies to obtain employment data, categorized by race/ethnicity, gender, and job category. This employment data must be pulled from one pay period in either July, August, or September of the current survey year.
Single-establishment companies are defined as those who do business at only one physical address. These companies are only required to submit one EEO-1 data record/report per year - a Type 1 EEO-1 Report.
Multi-establishment companies are those who do business at two or more physical addresses. Unlike a single-establishment company, multi-establishments are required to submit a separate report for the headquarters, a separate report for each establishment with 50 or more employees, a separate report for each establishment with fewer than 50 employees, and a consolidated report that includes all employees. These reports are listed as follows:

In late 2016, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission announced proposed changes to the current EEO-1 Reports. The current proposal would build on the existing reporting structure and would require employees to also provide the number of workers within 12 specified pay bands. If approved, these changes will take effect starting with the 2017 filing year. You can read more about the proposal on the EEOC website here.
